Yanfeng expects our suppliers to conduct their operations in a socially and environmentally responsible manner, including compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
In July 2010, US law: Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act began to be enforced. The new law imposes requirements relating to "Conflict Minerals." Conflict minerals are "minerals mined in conditions of armed conflict and human rights abuses…." The law focuses on 4 Minerals, which are Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten & Gold (often called "3TG"). The Automotive Industry issued an official letter via AIAG (Automotive Industry Action Group) in 2011, communicating expectations related to reporting and disclosure requirements for conflict minerals and human rights abuses. Companies listed on NY SC (New York Stock Exchange) have duties to provide a report to US authorities. Therefore, customers, e.g., Honda, Ford, GM, Toyota, expect Conflict Minerals reporting from Yanfeng (YF). To meet our various customer's expectations, YF must collect relevant Conflict Minerals information from our supplier chain.
- The preferred response tool is iPCMP (iPont Conflict Minerals Platform) which Basic License is free of charge
- Supplier Contact Letter: communication of CM responsible person to [email protected]
- CMRT Template: developed by Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative (CFSI) for Conflict Minerals supply chain investigation
