Sourcing Responsibly

APV Engineered Coatings is committed to responsible sourcing, particularly with respect to Conflict Minerals. APV is dedicated to maintaining our policy on restricting, to the best of our knowledge, the purchase of raw materials containing tin, tantalum, tungsten or gold (the “Conflict Minerals”), that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and adjoining countries. We thoroughly understand the important role businesses play in helping to mitigate ambiguity in supply chain in the trade of Conflict Minerals. To that end, APV complies with all laws and regulations related to Conflict Minerals.

To meet Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) reporting requirements, APV conducts an annual reasonable country of origin inquiry, and due diligence as appropriate, with regard to raw materials containing Conflict Minerals that are “necessary to the functionality or production” of products manufactured, or contracted to be manufactured, by APV. APV also requires its suppliers to comply with applicable laws and regulations related to Conflict Minerals, and to respond to APV’s annual reasonable country of origin inquiry, and due diligence as appropriate, with regard to raw materials that contain Conflict Minerals that are “necessary to the functionality or production” of products manufactured, or contracted to be manufactured, by APV.
