Responsible Conflict Minerals Sourcing Policy
TIME Interconnect Technology (Huizhou) Limited, as a good corporate citizen fulfilling its social responsibility, we support the code of conduct of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), and are committed to upholding social and environmental responsibility and business ethics. On responsible mineral procurement, --
for tungsten, tin, tantalum, gold, cobalt and other minerals from conflict or high-risk areas, and conflict minerals controlled by non-governmental armed forces or illegal military factions through smuggling trade, TIME Interconnect promises to be committed to purchasing mineral raw materials used in products in a responsible manner. The due diligence shall be carried out in accordance with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict Affected and High Risk Areas.
we require suppliers to follow the same principle of due diligence, determine the source of minerals they use, and promise not to purchase these materials from sources that contribute to military conflict or lead to human rights violations. If conflict minerals are used to provide to TIME Interconnect's products, the supplier shall immediately inform and take alternative solutions, and implement relevant rectification measures as required by our company, and continue to supply only after the rectification is confirmed to be completed, so as to ensure that the conflict free requirements are fully met.
we require suppliers to comply with the code of conduct of the Responsible Business Alliance(RBA), and only purchase materials from their suppliers responsible for the environment and society, and do not prohibit suppliers from purchasing minerals from Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and its neighboring countries. They need to purchase from smelters certified by Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP), the responsible minerals assurance process confirmed by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI). Smelters that do not pass RMAP certification or do not meet customer requirements must be removed from the supply chain.
we conduct a questionnaire survey on conflict minerals every year, requiring suppliers to use the RMI Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT) or other reports that meet the requirements of the IPC-1755 Conflict Minerals Data Exchange Standard to inform them of their due diligence measures and disclose smelters in their supply chain And identify the conformity of the information provided by the supplier Compare and confirm with the qualified list of Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) and customer requirements.
due diligence management of responsible minerals in the supply chain is a process of continuous improvement. We will share due diligence information with customers and seek sustainable solutions with customers and suppliers.
