Conflict minerals policy

Conflict minerals policy

This is Total Power Europe B.V.'s statement regarding the Conflict Minerals issue that is addressed in section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Total Power Europe B.V. (TPE) does not purchase the Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten and gold directly from smelters or mines. TPE's manufacturing facilities, however, purchase components that contain these metals from suppliers, which are being used in their manufacturing process. Therefore, we must rely on the source information provided by our manufacturing facilities and their suppliers.

Herein TPE declares their Conflict Mineral Policy. This statement is based on information collected from TPE’s supply chain, subcontractors and cooperation partners.

TPE's manufacturing facilities request their suppliers to complete, where applicable, the standardized EICC/GeSI conflict Minerals Reporting Template in order to trace the metals back through the supply chain. The information provided so far is not yet completed, as the supply chain is still working through the process with their suppliers and sub-suppliers.

TPE's manufacturing facilities will continually work with their suppliers, subcontractors and cooperation partners to trace back origin of used components in order to ensure responsible sourcing.

TPE supports the actions of the Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP). Suppliers must provide written evidence of due diligence documenting that raw materials used to produce gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten, supplied to or used in the manufacturing of TPE's products do not originate from mining or smelting operations in the Conflict Region.
