Conflict Minerals Policy Statement

On August 22, 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued the final conflict minerals rule under Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. This Conflict Minerals rule requires publicly traded companies to report annually the presence of conflict minerals (tin, tungsten, tantalum, and gold) originating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or adjoining countries.

Stark Electronics is committed to sourcing components and minerals from companies that share our values around human rights, ethics, and environmental responsibility. We also require all suppliers to comply with applicable legal standards and requirements.

Stark Electronics will be requiring all of our suppliers to provide us with complete conflict minerals declarations using the EICC/GeSI Conflict Minerals Reporting Template. We will reconsider our willingness to partner with suppliers that fail to comply with this policy. We strive to work cooperatively with our customer and supply chain partners in implementing conflict minerals compliance programs.
