Martech Medical, Inc. & Point Medical Corp.
There has been increased awareness of violence and human rights violations in the mining of certain minerals from a location described as the "Conflict Region", which is situated in the eastern portion of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and surrounding countries. Companies around the globe have been requested to practice reasonable due diligence with their supply chain to assure that specified metals are not being sourced from mines in the Conflict Region, which is controlled by non-government military groups, or unlawful military factions.
Martech Medical, Inc. and Point Medical Corp. support this initiative and have either obtained, or are in the process of obtaining, information from our current metal suppliers concerning the origin of the metals that are used in the manufacture of Martech Medical, Inc. and Point Medical Corp. products. Based upon information provided by our suppliers, Martech Medical, Inc. and Point Medical Corp. do not knowingly use metals derived from the Conflict Region in our products.
Suppliers of metals used in the manufacture of Martech Medical, Inc. and Point Medical Corp. products (specifically gold, tin, tantalum, and tungsten) must demonstrate that they understand the conflict minerals laws and will not knowingly procure specified metals that originate from the Conflict Region.
Suppliers must review and agree in writing to the following conflict minerals contractual language:
Without any further consideration, Supplier shall provide such further cooperation as Martech Medical, Inc. and Point Medical Corp. may reasonably require in order to meet any obligations it may have under conflict minerals laws, including, without limitation, under Dodd-Frank Section 1502.
