In August 2012, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) issued its final rules regarding “Conflict Minerals” (known as ‘3TG’ – Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten and Gold) as defined in and required by section 1502 of the Dodd – Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Act”). As a results, many companies are now focusing on whether and to what extent their products contain Conflict Minerals and whether such Conflict Minerals come from the Democratic Republic of Congo and the adjoining countries named in the Act.
Darrah Electric Company (DEC) is working towards ensuring that our products do not contain Conflict Minerals that have been sourced from mines that support or fund conflict within the Democratic Republic of Congo or adjoining countries. DEC is devoted to insuring the policy is being followed and is opposed to human rights abuses. As part of that commitment, DEC seeks to source products, components and materials from companies that share our values around human rights, ethics and environmental responsibility
Information from manufacturers is becoming readily available and DEC continues earnest efforts to facilitate the timely flow of information to assist our customers.
