Conflict-Free Minerals Policy
Conflict Minerals are tantalum, tin, tungsten, gold (3TG), and cobalt derived from or sourced from mines in conflict areas or high risk regions, or illegally taxed on trade routes, either of which are controlled by non-governmental military groups, or unlawful military factions. JCET requires our suppliers to comply with the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) Code of Conduct and only source materials from environmentally and socially responsible suppliers and requires that all vendors purchase and use minerals that comply with “Conflict-Free”, and source from the Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP) Conformant Smelters & Refiners list of Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) (www.responsiblemineralsinitiative.org). All suppliers shall source the minerals from smelters & refiners who have been validated by the RMAP audit program. Smelters & refiners who are not RMAP audited shall be removed from the supply chain.
