Legal And Regulatory Statements
On July 21, 2010, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was signed into law. The Dodd-Frank Act and related U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission rules require certain companies to disclose the extent to which the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture contain so called conflict minerals sourced from mines in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries where the presence of armed conflict and human rights abuses exist. Conflict minerals include tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold, which are used in many electronic components and computer products. Being a private company that does not report to the SEC, Great Plains Electronics (GPE) is not bound to the Conflict Materials laws, rules and regulations. However, GPE is a socially responsible company in our global community and we are fully committed to the intent of these regulations. As an electronic components distributor, GPE supplies components which contain various types of metals, some of which are potentially derived from the minerals (tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold) obtained from the conflict affected areas. GPE has adopted a policy regarding the supply chain of components which may utilize minerals from these conflict affected areas:
Conflict Minerals Policy
The Great Plains Electronics Conflict Materials Policy reflects the commitment of GPE to comply with legal and customer/industry requirements to ensure GPE does not directly or indirectly engage with suppliers identified with a reasonable risk that they are sourcing from conflict affected areas. GPE will suspend or discontinue engagement with any suppliers identified with a reasonable risk that they may be linked to these conflict-affected areas.
