Tungsten, tantalum, tin (and the ores from which they originate) and gold are considered “conflict minerals” under the U.S. Dodd-Frank Act (Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, passed by U.S. Congress in 2010).
Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act obliges companies filing reports with the U.S. SEC to disclose the conflict minerals contained in the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture, where such minerals are “necessary to the functionality or production” of the products. Although Hubbard-Hall as a privately held company does not file reports to the SEC, we are committed to sourcing components and materials from companies that share our values regarding respect for human rights, ethics and environmental responsibility.
Hubbard-Hall requires our suppliers to comply with all applicable laws and regulations, commitment to ethical conduct and respect for human rights in the spirit of internationally recognized standards. We also require our suppliers to provide documentation declaring the materials, chemicals and components used in the purchased products and their production process. We have confirmed with our suppliers that none of the above minerals are used in the production of our products, nor do any originate from the Democratic Republic of Congo or surrounding countries.
