Aegis Components Inc. Statement on Conflict Materials and REACH

Conflict Minerals Policy
“Conflict Minerals” including tin, tungsten, tantalum, and gold (collectively 3TG), mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries, contribute to the funding of violence and human rights violations in the region. The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 requires certain companies to disclose whether products they manufacture or contract to manufacture contains 3TG sourced from the DRC region.

As a distributor, Aegis Components Inc. does not manufacture or contract to manufacture products containing 3TG, nor do we directly purchase minerals from any source.

We understand many of the products that we distribute may contain 3TG and we support and promote the traceability of these minerals, but we are not able to certify as to the country of origin of the minerals contained in the products we distribute. We encourage customers requiring this information to contact the manufacturers of those products.

REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) – Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006
The products that Aegis Components Inc. primarily distributes are considered “articles” under European REACH regulations and are not designed to release any substances during use.

As an independent distributor, Aegis Components Inc. does not manufacture the products it distributes and is not aware of the chemicals involved in the manufacture of these products unless communicated by the manufacturer. If we are provided with any updated information by the manufacturers relating to REACH, we will communicate this to our customers.
