Parallel Wireless Conflict Mineral Policy

  1. 1. Doc CMD.02 Rev A August 1st , 2017 CONFLICT MINERALS POLICY In 2010, the U.S. Dodd-Frank Act was passed concerning “Conflict Minerals*” originating from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or “adjoining countries**”. The SEC has published final rules associated with the disclosure of the source of Conflict Minerals by U.S. publicly traded companies. The rules reference the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, which guides suppliers to establish policies, due diligence frameworks, and management systems. Parallel Wireless Inc., as a privately owned company, is not subject to the Conflict Minerals rules and reporting requirements enforced since May 2014. However we understand that our customers may be, and we are committed to helping our customers comply with their reporting requirements. In order to confirm if our products contain Conflict Minerals, Parallel Wireless Inc. has conducted a survey with our key suppliers to ascertain their use, if any, of these minerals in the products that they supply us. The results of this effort demonstrated that our key suppliers do not use Conflict Minerals in the products they supply to us. Parallel Wireless Inc. has initiated a program to require our suppliers to provide us with completed Conflict Minerals declarations using the industry-standard EICC/GeSI Conflict Minerals Reporting template. Consequently,we can in turn represent that, to the best of our knowledge, our products do not contain Conflict Minerals. Parallel Wireless Inc. will continue to work with our key suppliers to ensure that we are able to identify the use ofConflict Minerals and our position as stated above remains accurate. If you should need a copy of the EICC/GeSI report please contact your Parallel Wireless Inc. Sales Representative. * “conflict minerals” are defined as (A) columbite- tantalite, also known as coltan (the metal ore from which tantalum is extracted); cassiterite (the metal ore from which tin is extracted); gold; wolframite (the metal ore from which tungsten is extracted); or their derivatives; or (B) any other mineral or its derivatives determined by the Secretary of State to be financing conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country. ** “adjoining country” is defined as a country that shares an internationally recognized border with the DRC, which presently includes Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic, the Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia.
