To Whom It May Concern,

There are serious concerns that Tin, Tantalum, Tungsten and Gold (also referred to as 3TG or “conflict minerals”) extracted from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and the surrounding countries is furthering conflict and extreme human rights violations.  Governments are issuing laws that require thousands of companies to publicly disclose conflict minerals in their products and whether or not those minerals are “conflict free” (e.g. United States “Dodd-Frank” released in August 2012, European Union pending legislation for 2015 release and multiple actions already taken by Central Africa countries).  Additionally, customers are demanding that products be “conflict free”.


These companies and their full supply chains are rapidly mapping the supply of conflict minerals and may be discontinuing engagement with parties that supply products or components which have not been validated as “conflict free”.  Of particular focus are smelters who represent the “choke point” in the supply chain.
The Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative (www.conflictfreesourcing.org), which represents over 200 companies from over seven industries and several other concerned stakeholders, is requesting your immediate action to engage and be independently audited.
The Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative provides an industry-wide solution, the Conflict-Free Smelter Program (CFSP), to validate smelter’s procurement activities and to publicly recognize them as being compliant to the CFSP protocols (http://www.conflictfreesmelter.org/cfshome.htm). Once found compliant, companies may reasonably conclude that these sources are “conflict-free”.
Your participation in the CFSP can assure your customers that you source only from DRC conflict free sources and more importantly expand your future business opportunities.
We invite you to commence participation in the CFSP as soon as possible by submitting a request to the CFS Program at info@conflictfreesmelter.org.  You may review the current status of other smelters currently participating in the CFS Program at http://www.conflictfreesourcing.org/conflict-free-smelter-refiner-lists/.
Thank you for your consideration on this matter.  This letter is signed on the behalf of the companies listed below.
