Some minerals, tantalum (Ta), tin (Sn), gold (Au), tungsten (W) originating from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC region”) or adjoining countries, are commonly referred to as "conflict minerals".
Under the guideline of OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development), the laws-of-the-United-States and international organizations regarding conflict minerals, a rational investigation into place-of-origin or due diligence is requested for confirming whether any conflict mineral is contained in the end product throughout the entire supply chain.
Daisho Denshi views this corporate responsibility as an important CSR issue, and we practice responsible procuring of minerals through cooperation with our supply chain and partner companies to insure a conflict mineral free product.
In the U.S., a law was passed and put into effect in January 2013 requiring major corporations to report their status and use of any conflict minerals.
Daisho Denshi takes a practical, advanced stance towards confirming the origin of minerals and the non-use of conflict mineral through cooperation with suppliers so that our customers can use our products worry-free.
We request that all of our suppliers understand the international situation regarding conflict minerals and to approve of our policy requiring the non-use of conflict minerals. We also require their full cooperation regarding audits and research conducted by Daisho Denshi of their facilities and procurement records as a member of our supply chain.
