In July 2010, President Obama signed into law H.R. 4173, the Wall Street Reform
and Consumer Protection Act. Section 1502 of that act imposes reporting requirements for
US companies on manufacturers of products that contain metals derived from minerals that
originate in the Democratic Republic of Congo or an adjoining country (so-called ”conflict minerals”).
Weidmüller is constantly exploring this subject and is pleased to make the following statement:
Weidmüller is not sourcing from vendors in the DR Congo at this time.
To our knowledge no “conflict materials” are contained in Weidmüller products.
It is Weidmüller´s policy, not to use “conflict materials” or items deriving from “conflict minerals” in its products.
