U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission rules require certain companies to disclose the extent to which the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture contain so-called conflict minerals sourced from mines in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries. Conflict minerals include tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold, which are used in many electronic components.
These regulations are already valid in the US, but will take effect in the European Union from January 1st, 2021.
Nijkerk Electronics does not import minerals. Minerals are being used in components Nijkerk Electronics supplies. Our suppliers, who create these components, do not obtain these minerals from conflict areas. Declarations are available upon request.
