Section 1 – Conflict Minerals Disclosure
Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report
In accordance with the disclosure requirements promulgated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), we have undertaken efforts to determine our conflict minerals1 reporting requirements for the period from January 1 to December 31, 2015.
We have determined that during 2015 our company manufactured (or contracted to manufacture) products as to which conflict minerals are necessary to the functionality or production of such products. As is required, we have conducted a good faith reasonable country of origin inquiry (“RCOI”) to determine whether the necessary conflict minerals originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) or an adjoining country (collectively the “Covered Countries”) or came from recycled or scrap sources.
1 The term “conflict mineral” is defined in Section 1502(e)(4) of the Act as (A) columbite-tantalite, also known as coltan (the metal ore from which tantalum is extracted); cassiterite (the metal ore from which tin is extracted); gold; wolframite (the metal ore from which tungsten is extracted); or their derivatives; or (B) any other mineral or its derivatives determined by the Secretary of State to be financing conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) or an adjoining country.
Atrion’s RCOI process included conducting an inquiry of our direct suppliers using the Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative’s Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”). We relied upon our suppliers’ representations regarding the origin of their minerals and their smelter data to determine the source of the conflict minerals within our supply chain. Based on the results of our RCOI, we exercised due diligence on the source and chain of custody of the conflict minerals.
The Company has filed this Specialized Disclosure Form (“Form SD”) and the associated Conflict Minerals Report, which appears as Exhibit 1.01 hereto and is publicly available at http://atrioncorp.com/investor_relations/Investor_Relations.htm.
