At CCR, we recognize that the use of 3TG (Tungsten, Tantalum, Tin, and Gold, and their respective ores) originating from countries in the “conflict region” (the Democratic Republic of Congo and neighbouring countries of Angola, Burundi, the Central African Republic, the Republic of Congo, Uganda, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, and Zambia) supports the ongoing armed conflict in this region. Therefore, we are committed to supporting our customers who, voluntarily or involuntarily, comply with the rules set forth under section 1502 of the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. We also recognize the tremendous and arduous task this Act presents our suppliers and will encourage them to conduct Reasonable Country of Origin inquiries and find alternative sources of raw materials should it be found that 3TG is being sourced from a non-certified conflict free smelter within the conflict region.
