Legislation of the term Conflict Minerals was first presented by the US Kansas republican senator Sam Brownback in April 2009 as Congo Conflict.


As proposed in the Minerals Act of 2009 but it was not passed by the House of Representatives. Later, the Democratic Party congressman James McDermott of the Washington State and 56 other congressmen jointly signed the Act and again proposed the draft of the Conflict Minerals Trade Act in November 2009. But it was again shelved by the House of Representatives.


In December 2009, Congressman Barney Frank of the Democratic Party and senator Chris Dodd thereby proposed the draft of the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in view of relevant shortcomings of the financial system as exposed in the financial crisis (hereinafter referred to as the D.F. Act). The Act was reviewed by the House of Representatives and upon passing of the official report, US President Barack Obama signed on July 21, 2010 and became law. The section on Conflict Minerals was added to section 1502 in Chapter 15 on Miscellaneous Provisions set forth unequivocal regulations and requirements on so-called Conflict Minerals.

In Democratic Republic of the Congo or its adjoining countries, violent conflicts have caused long-term instability and human rights are trampled seriously in the mineral areas controlled by non-governmental armed groups or illegal armed factions (groups) , due to the mining and trading of minerals such as Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten, Gold and their derivatives, arousing widespread concern in the international community. So in the year of 2010, the United States adopted the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which is derived from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or adjacent countries' “conflict minerals”, to promote the establishment of a conflict-free procurement plan and guide suppliers to establish a conflict-free minerals policy, due diligence framework and management system.

Conflict minerals and conflict metals:The minerals originated from Democratic Republic of the Congo or its adjacent countries (conflict-affected and high-risk areas) that directly or indirectly finance or benefit the armed groups that abuse human rights, including Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten, Gold, Cobalt and their derivatives (except for customer specific requirements).

Neighboring Countries:Internationally recognized as other countries bordering Democratic Republic of the Congo contain Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi, Tanzania, South Sudan, Republic of the Congo, Zambia, Angola, Central African Republic, Kenya (the United Nations Security Council has identified these countries as minerals of the Congolese lode) .

RMI means Responsible Minerals Initiative.

RMAP means Responsible Minerals Assurance Process.

OECD means Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.

GeSI means Global e-Sustainability Initiative.

RBA means Responsible Business Alliance.

CMRT means Conflict Minerals Reporting Template.

TXC supports Responsible Minerals Initiative(RMI)of Responsible Business Alliance(RBA), and requires suppliers to be responsible for the procurement of non-conflicting raw materials. Through the system requirements of the Conflict Minerals Management Regulation, TXC fully controls the products using mineral materials from conflict areas in Africa, and uses RBA’s proposed management tools for control. Simultaneously TXC will establish the due diligence framework fitting in with the Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High Risk Areas issued by the OECD to implement TXC supply chain conflict mineral risk management.

Key points of the conflict mineral management process:

Strategy of Conflict mineral risk management:
After confirming the existence of conflict mineral risks, implement the following mitigation strategies,
First, continue to trade in the implementation of measurable and controllable risk mitigation operations;
Second, suspend or delay trade when seeking continuous, measurable risk mitigation operations;
Third, when risk mitigation and transfer are not feasible or acceptable, end the relationship with the supplier.

In order to comply with the requirements on conflict minerals management of the Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI), Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) and other domestic and foreign regulations and industry regulations, our company has formulated the following policy and promised to use the policy as the highest guiding principle for conflict mineral management, and take effective measures for internal and external communication to ensure that TXC purchases minerals responsibly and fulfills corporate social responsibility.

Commit to source only from smelters that have been validated by independent audit program or customer-designated vendors.
