On Aug. 22, 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) adopted final rules to implement section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. This law imposes reporting requirements on manufacturers if the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture contain minerals identified as “conflict minerals.” The rules define conflict minerals as cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, wolframite and gold, as well as their derivatives tin, tantalum and tungsten. Other minerals may be identified in the future at the discretion of the U.S. Secretary of State.
To comply with this law, Visteon has imposed standard reporting requirements on its supply chain regardless of where the components and materials are purchased. Visteon has been working closely with the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG), and with our customers and other Tier 1 suppliers, to ensure continued consistency in the tools used to establish this process. Requirements are cascaded annually to our supply chain, and Visteon intends to do what we can to ensure the components and materials in our products, regardless of where they are assembled or sold, do not contain conflict minerals that have contributed to the armed conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and surrounding countries.
