Information on "Conflict Minerals"

In accordance with section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank-Act, companies noted on the stock exchange in the USA are obliged to provide information about their use of so-called “conflict minerals”. These include tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and their neighbouring countries (Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic, Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia) – the so-called DRC Region. Recently similar risks are added for other conflict and high-risk areas (Latin America, Myanmar, Nigeria) and other raw materials like mica and cobalt.

EU regulation 2017/821 obliges Union importers of tin, tantalum, tungsten, their ores, and gold to carry out a due diligence check of their supply chain. For processing companies like RK Rose+Krieger GmbH there are no direct obligations under the aforementioned EU regulation.

RK Rose+Krieger GmbH is aware of its social responsibility in terms of the environment, safety, health and observance of human rights. Our business conduct reflects our commitment to peaceful and sustainable use of our worldwide resources. We do not directly import conflict minerals, nor do we have any information that minerals that originate from this conflict region are used in our products.

Please understand therefore that, due to the large amount of enquiries, we cannot complete any special forms. We hope that this declaration contains the information you require.
