NXP Conflict Minerals Status Update: May 23, 2017
We will provide another NXP CMRT update when new data is received. Please check back to this website for all NXP status updates and CMRT revisions.
Hi-Temp Specialty Metals, Inc. CID000731 (Tantalum): This facility is no longer in operation, however, during their time in service they were a CFSI Certified smelter. This certification is valid through August 2017. Our suppliers have not yet indicated removal of this smelter from their supply chains for reporting year 2017. Therefore, Hi-Temp Specialty Metals, Inc. will remain on our CMRT until further notice. Please check back to this site for any updates.
The Conflict Minerals regulation in the United States (Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and the Consumer Protection Act) applies to companies who must report to the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC). These companies are required to review their products and determine whether tin, tungsten, tantalum and gold (3TG) are necessary for production. If necessary for production, companies are required to evaluate their supply chain and declare whether 3TG originate in and around the Democratic Republic of the Congo from sources that finance civil rights abuses.
NXP® is dedicated to ensuring conflict free sourcing. To comply with the Conflict Minerals regulation, NXP developed and implemented a policy and due diligence process in order to reasonably assure that the tin, tungsten, tantalum and gold in the products we manufacture do not directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups.
All suppliers, including contractors and external manufacturers, are required to comply withNXP's Supplier Code of Conduct, which includes requirements relating to conflict minerals and responsible sourcing.
NXP will continue our commitment and efforts towards a conflict-free supply chain including conflict-free smelters and refiners. Below you can find supporting documents and more information regarding NXP’s Conflict Minerals policy.
