Conflict Mineral Policy
Prototype and Short-Run Services, Inc is dedicated to sourcing materials from vendors that share our standards regarding human rights, environmental responsibility and ethics.
On August 22, 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") approved the Final Rule regarding sourcing of conflict materials under Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act ("the Dodd-Frank Act"). Conflict minerals currently are columbite-tantalite (coltan; i.e. tantalum); cassiterite (i.e. tin): wolframite (i.e. tungsten); gold and/or their dericatives. The rule enforces reporting requirements on publicly traded companies subject to the SEC to annually disclose the occurrence of conflict minerals originating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo ("DRC") or surrounding countries ("Covered Countries") in the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture whereby the conflict minerals are necessary to the functionality or production of a product. Prototype and Short-Run Services, Inc is committed to complying with the legislation affecting their publically traded customers subject to the SEC, and is implementing a Conflict Minerals Reporting Program to meet their requests for information regarding Dodd Frank 1502.
