100% CONFLICT-FREE MINERALS POLICY
Rev. Ta 03 / 0416
Metallurgical Products India (P) Limited (MPIL) is committed to sourcing all its mineral raw materials (ie. Tantalite, Columbite & other Tantalum bearing minerals) in an ethical and responsible manner. We strongly support the CFS (Conflict Free Smelter) program initiated by the EICC (Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition) / GeSI (Global e-sustainability Initiative), and conduct our business in accordance with those principles. MPIL will exercise due diligence on suppliers consistent with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance Annexure II for responsible global supply chains of minerals from conflict affected and high risk areas and encourage our suppliers to do likewise with their suppliers.
- We do not buy minerals that originate or that are suspected to originate from conflict zones in the Democratic Republic of Congo or its adjoining nine countries. We do not wish to be a part of any business that fuels humanitarian conflict or that directly / indirectly finances or benefits illegal armed groups in conflict affected areas.
- We will immediately suspend or discontinue engagement with suppliers that are found to be or suspected to be sourcing minerals from conflict areas.
- We support artisanal mining endeavors, which provide a lawful livelihood to members of local communities and help in their development.
- We believe it is important to distinguish between genuine mining enterprises, and those, which are used to finance illegal activities and exploit local populations. Towards this, we try and get an in-depth understanding of our mineral supply chain and derive confidence from witnessing the operations of the companies we buy from.
- While respecting the business interests of our mineral suppliers, we insist that they disclose to us, the source of each and every mineral consignment offered to us and support it with relevant documentation issued by the competent government authorities in that country.
- In most cases, inspectors from our company visit the mentioned mine sites periodically to ensure legitimate flow of material and accurate documentation.
- Our internal monitoring system has strengthened our 100% Conflict-Free Minerals Policy.
- Columbite & Tantalite are associated with varying levels of NORM. All shipments to MPIL must be made in accordance with applicable regulations / classification for transportation and handling. We ensure strict compliance with all safety regulations prescribed by the Govt. of India for handling / processing of NORM and hazardous chemicals.
- For any query regarding our policy on conflict minerals, or to report any incident in this regard, please contact Mr. Ashutosh Mishra (Asst. Manager – Operations) on Email: firstname.lastname@example.org ; Phone : +91 22 2740 1851 / +91 22 2740 1852
