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 originates 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 with NXP's Supplier Code of Conduct, which includes requirements relating to conflict minerals and responsible sourcing.
Additional Due Diligence
- Since 2013, NXP has chaired the World Semiconductor Council’s conflict minerals team.
- Since 2014, NXP has been a member of the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI ) (formerly Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative (CFSI)). NXP is actively involved in RMI activities including the Smelter Engagement team and the Due Diligence process team.
- NXP uses the RMI Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT) and relies upon the RMAP Smelter Database and RCOI information.
