Conflict Materials Rule

On August 22, 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission adopted what is known as the “Conflict Minerals Rule” to combat the atrocities occurring in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the adjoining countries. The rule requires U.S. public companies to conduct diligence on the use and source of “conflict minerals” in their products and, depending upon the results of that diligence, make certain specified disclosures concerning the use and source of those minerals. “Conflict minerals” are defined under the Rule as cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, gold, wolframite and three derivatives: tin, tantalum and tungsten. While Innovative Power Products is a privately held company, we respect the rights of the citizens of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the adjoining countries and have adopted policies and procedures that, to the best of our knowledge, deem our supply chain as “DRC Conflict Free.”
