Statement on Conflict Materials



In August of 2012 the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) established the reporting obligations of section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act signed in 2010. Bearing Headquarters while not required under the SEC act to report does fully support the efforts of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

 

Bearing Headquarters feels it needs to act responsibly to insure that its supply chain is conflict free. We will work with our supply chain to assure that they do not use minerals from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Or, it’s surrounding countries that might be supporting the human rights abuses in the DRC.

 

Bearing Headquarters does not buy directly tin, tantalum, tungsten or gold commonly referred to as the “3T&G”. We will actively request statements from our suppliers that they too do not buy 3T&G from the DRC and comply with the intent of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and the SEC directives on this subject matter.
