Atlas Pressed Metals is committed to ensuring the health, safety and protection of people and the environment. As required by the Conflict Materials provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, HR 4173, Section 1502 (Conflict Minerals Act), Atlas Pressed Metals is working with all of its suppliers to confirm that their supplies of materials do not contain conflict minerals that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of Congo or adjoining countries.
Atlas Pressed Metals will not knowingly purchase raw material supplies that contain conflict minerals. Due to the complexity of the routes by which metals, and in particular, precious metals, are smelted, recycled and sold, including the common practice of co-mingling ores and scrap from many different sources, it is often impossible for any company to obtain full traceability to an exact origin of all materials.
However, Atlas Pressed Metals will take continuous practical action to seek to ensure that minerals from the conflict region do not enter our supply chain, including requesting reliable certificates of origin for all material that might possibly originate in conflict areas or adjacent countries.
