PennEngineering is committed to social and environmental responsibility in our activities as well as within our supply chain. In addition to our commitment, we must meet regulatory obligations in addition to specific customer requirements when flowed down to us.

On August 22, 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission released the rules for section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. These rules require U.S. publicly traded companies to trace the Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten and Gold in their products through the supply chain, and disclose whether they came from “conflict mines” in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Although PennEngineering is not publicly traded, our intention is to comply with these rules as a part of our community responsibility. We also want to be responsive to many of our customers that are publicly traded.

The Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) have created a conflict Minerals Reporting Template as a common means to collect information on the source of Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten and Gold. This template is being widely used across the Electronics industry. The template, training materials, and additional information can be found at www.conflictfreesmelter.org.

PennEngineering is using this template for our internal due diligence activities and reporting to our customers. This template is available for customer review on the following link: PennEngineering CMRT Template. PennEngineering conducted an exhaustive due diligence process which included the identification of materials or minerals of concern in our products, as well as the identification and communication with the applicable suppliers. Our template was updated May 2024.

Also available is the PennEngineering Extended Mineral Reporting Template (EMRT).

We are requiring the following from our suppliers, if any of the conflict minerals are intentionally added and are necessary to the functionality or production of any applicable product:

PennEngineering will take the appropriate actions to comply with the applicable rules in addition to supporting our customers to reach our common goal to build up a socially and environmentally responsible supply chain.
