POLICY REGARDING CONFLICT-FREE MINERALS
CalAmp strongly disapproves of the violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo (“DRC”) and adjoining countries (collectively and with DRC, the “Covered Countries”), and is committed to supporting responsible sourcing of the subject minerals (cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, wolframite, their derivatives tin, tantalum and tungsten, and gold (collectively “3TG”) to help ensure that they do not fund armed conflict in the Covered Countries.
In furtherance of the goal of Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, CalAmp expects its suppliers to supply us with components and materials that are “DRC conflict-free.” This means: (1) any 3TG materials necessary to the functionality and production of supplied components and materials do not directly or indirectly finance armed groups through mining or mineral trading in the Covered Countries, or (2) any 3TG materials in supplied components and materials are from recycled or scrap sources.
CalAmp uses the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (the “Template”), maintained by the Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative (“CFSI”), to solicit information on 3TG materials from its suppliers. CalAmp also expects its suppliers to adopt policies with respect to conflict minerals in support of this Policy and to require their upstream suppliers to adopt similar policies.
