Section 1 – Conflict Minerals Disclosure


Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report


Roper Technologies, Inc. (“Roper”, the “Company”, “we”, “our” or “us”) is subject to the requirements of the Conflict Minerals Statutory Provision based on the fact that the minerals defined therein as “conflict minerals” are necessary to the functionality or production of products we manufacture or contract to be manufactured. The Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) defines the four “conflict minerals” as cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, wolframite (and their derivatives tin, tantalum, and tungsten) and gold (“3TG”).


Company level surveys were performed with affected direct suppliers providing parts and materials for products we manufactured during the 2015 reporting period to conduct the reasonable country of origin inquiry (“RCOI”). The Conflict Free Sourcing Initiative’s Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”) was utilized as the basis for this inquiry.


We were able to determine that a portion of the 3TG originated, or may have originated, from the Democratic Republic of the Congo or adjoining countries (“Covered Countries”), may not be from recycled or scrap sources, and a portion of them have unknown origins. Therefore, we were required to exercise due diligence on the 3TG source and chain of custody following a nationally or internationally recognized due diligence framework. These details are provided in our Conflict Minerals Report, a copy of which is provided as Exhibit 1.01 hereto.


Item 1.02 Exhibit


A copy of our Conflict Minerals Report is provided as Exhibit 1.01 hereto and is publicly available at
