To meet the requirements of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act, section 1502, Frontier Electronics has taken due diligence within our supply chain of 3TG -Tantalum (Ta), Tungsten (W), Tin (Sn), and Gold (Au) - materials to assure they come from DRC conflict-free countries.
Frontier Electronics only sources 3TG materials from suppliers which can provide confirmation that the metals are not derived from or sourced from mines in conflict areas of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries (Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi, Tanzania, and Kenya). Frontier Electronics also requires the suppliers to fill out the reporting template created by the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) for sourcing information on conflict minerals. A copy of the template can be found using the link below:
