Conflict Minerals

Icpe as an organization directly involved in projects R & D products and technologies for sustainable development, supports the eradication of human rights violations in any of the known forms, including in terms of their production activities for mineral extraction of some “conflict zones” as well as the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and neighboring countries.

Icpe conforms to the rules issued by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for the implementation of the reporting requirements and publication regarding the “conflict minerals”, needed its own manufacturing process.

By “Conflict minerals” we understand gold, Tin, tantalum and tungsten, derivatives of casiterit, columbita-tantalite, wolframite and other as will be specified in future, excerpts from “conflict zones”.

Icpe supports these requirements to promote the humanitarian objective of putting an end to violent conflicts from Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and surrounding countries, conflicts that are partially finatate from the exploitation and trade of “conflict minerals”.

Icpe commitment

  1. Support the goals and objectives of the legislation concerning the provision of “conflict minerals”
  2. No seedlings, knowingly, defined “conflict minerals” that come from plants located in the “conflict zone” or which are not certified “conflict free”
  3. Assure compliance with requirements to suppliers and ask for an analysis of the supply chain, in order to ensure that these minerals are obtained only from:
  • Mines and smelting sites located outside the “area of conflict” or
  • Mines and foundries that have been certified by an independent third party, as “conflict free” if they produce raw materials of the “conflict zone”.

This includes the requirement that our suppliers to dispose of any evidence by demonstrating that the raw materials used to produce gold, Tin, tantalum and tungsten, used in the manufacture of components and products supplied at Icpe, come from outside the “zone of conflict” and if coming from within a “zone of conflict”, mines or specified have been certified as “conflict free” by an independent third party.

The purpose of this policy is to ensure that our products are manufactured with only the materials, components or parts that are “conflict free”. In our turn we provide our beneficiaries that the products delivered are manufactured “conflict-free”.
