In August 2012, the United States and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved the final rule regarding the sourcing of conflict minerals as defined in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, Section 1502.
Conflict minerals are defined as: Gold (Au), tantalum (Ta), tin (Sn) and tungsten (W) derived from ores which have been mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo or adjoining countries. Profits from the mining are used to finance ongoing conflicts and the extraction of minerals is under terrible conditions with forced labours and violation of human rights.
To act in accordance with above mentioned regulation Habia Cable is committed to take action to prevent the sourcing of "conflict minerals" from Democratic Republic of Congo or adjoining countries and by that not contribute to armed conflict.
Habia Cable request its suppliers to determine the source of specified minerals and have implemented procedures to ensure that these metals contained in products do not originate from mines within the area concerned.
Appropriate action will be taken if it comes to our attention that a suppliers product containing minerals from a conflict area.
