CSPI Conflic Minerals Policy

Conflict Mineral Disclosure Rules

On August 22, 2012, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) adopted final rules pursuant to Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010 regarding conflict minerals disclosure. These rules require public companies to report to the SEC whether tantalum, tin, tungsten or gold (“conflict minerals”) mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo or adjoining countries are used in the products they manufacture. If conflict minerals originate in these countries, publicly traded companies are required to use due diligence to trace the source and chain of custody of these minerals leading up to their receipt by the reporting company and to describe this due diligence effort and its results in reports filed annually.

CSP, Inc. (CSPI) Conflict Minerals Policy Statement

CSPI is committed to complying fully with the SEC’s new conflict minerals disclosure rules. It is our policy to work with our supply chain partners to take reasonable steps aimed at assuring that the identified “conflict minerals” are not sourced by CSPI or any of its supply chain partners.

In supporting the principles and objective of this legislation CSPI requests our suppliers, in the chain of custody, exercise reasonable due diligence to determine the country of origin of these minerals and act in accordance with the “Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas”.
