Conflict Minerals Policy Statement
Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act enacted in July 2010 imposes new supply chain reporting requirements on publicly traded companies to promote transparency and consumer awareness regarding the use of “conflict minerals” columbite - tantalite (coltan), cassiterite, gold, wolframite,
or their derivatives (tantalum, tin, gold and tungsten) that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries.
Lifodas UAB, doing business as Fiber Optic Devices, supports efforts to eliminate the use of tantalum, tin, gold and tungsten from improper sources that could promote such serious problems in the DRC and adjoining countries.
As a Designer and Manufacturer of Fiber Optic Test Equipment and Fiber Optic Components, Lifodas UAB does not contract directly with suppliers of materials covered under Section 1502.
Lifodas UAB requires suppliers of Printed Circuit Assemblies, Components and Materials to confirm in best faith and document due diligence that their supply chains do not source those materials defined as “Conflict Materials”.
