Conflict Minerals


We support our customers in the fulfillment of the obligation to provide information on the use of "Conflict Minerals"!


Companies whose shares are traded on the US exchanges must comply with the "Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act" (DFA). Section 1502 of the DFA deals with so-called "Conflict Minerals". These include gold, tantalum, tungsten and tin originating from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and neighboring countries. In these areas there is a risk that violent clashes between armed groups will be financed with the proceeds from the extraction, processing and trading of these raw materials.
