The US Dodd Frank Act mandates companies to identify and disclose to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) any sources of 3TG used in their products if they originate in or around the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The 3TG list assessed:
01. Cassiterite (ore for tin): tin is used as solder on circuit boards in every electronic device we use. 02. Columbite-tantalite (coltan, ore for tantalum): tantalum stores electricity and is essential to portable electronics and high-speed processing devices, such as laptops and cell phones. 03. Wolframite (tungsten, wolfram, ore for cobalt): commonly used in tools; enables cell phone vibration. 04. Gold: used in the wiring of electronic devices Or their derivatives and any other mineral, or its derivatives, as determined by the Secretary of State to be financing conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country.
Ozone™ helps in the following areas of the conflict minerals reporting process:
01. Discover the presence of 3TG in the product structure and supply chain. 02. Inquiry, collection and verification of Smelters for Reasonable country of origin inquiries (RCOI). 03. Conduct due diligence and audit trail for evidence, Establish and regulate the source of 3TGs from the DRC. 04. Analyze, report and certify conflict minerals status of the product structure and supply chain.
