RMF has a long term commitment to social justice, economic, environmental and sustainable development.
As a part of this strong commitment, RMF is fully committed to ensure that the tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold (conflict minerals) in our products do not directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups that are perpetrators of human rights abuses in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country.
RMF has committed to completion of this objective for tantalum, tin and gold and tungsten by the end of 2015.
As part of this commitment, RMF will exercise due diligence on all its suppliers in accordance with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk areas. Under this policy, RMF expects all its suppliers to:
1. Conduct their business in conformance with the EICC Code of Conduct requirements.
2. Exclusively source from smelters or refineries that have been independently audited and approved as conflict-free by the Conflict-Free Smelter Program or equivalent.
3. Exercise due diligence on their supply chains in accordance with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance and the EICC Code of Conduct.
RMF reviews supplier compliance with these objectives and where ever possible sources components from suppliers that meet these requirements.
Our objective is, by the end of 2015, to source components only from complying companies.
