DRC Conflict-Free Policy

In July 2010, the U.S. Government signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the "Dodd-Frank Act"). Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act requires all US publicly traded companies to file disclosures and reports with the U.S. Securitites and Exchanges Commission (SEC) related to the use of Conflict Minerals in their products.

TechNexion is committed to not using metals from conflict regions controlled by non-governmental military groups, or unlawfull military factions. TechNexion will take due diligence within its own supply chain to assure "DRC Conflict-Free" and that the metals of gold (Au), tantalum (Ta), tungsten (W), cobalt (Co) and tin (Sn) are not derived from or sourced from mines in conflict areas of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), or acquired through illegal transactions. Countries that do not meet the requirements of "Conflict-Free" include the following: DRC, Uganda, Burundi, Tanzania and Kenya (the United Nations Security Council lists metals from these countries are of DRC origins).

TechNexion declares and commits to refusing the application of metals from conflict regions; meanwhile, we request suppliers of TechNexion's supply chain to comply with the following requirements:

a. Ensure your operation complies with the social and environmental policies.

b. Not to use conflict minerals originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and its adjoining countries and other conflict regions.

c. Trace the origins of all the gold (Au), tantalum (Ta), tungsten (W), cobalt (Co) and tin (Sn) used in your products.

d. Enforce the same requirements to your upstream suppliers.
