BRC Metal S.A. manages strict due diligence on its “conflict minerals” such as cassiterite. Our due diligence is mandatory in order to determine that these minerals are not sourced from mines within the African Great Lakes Area controlled by military group. Our Supply Chain Policy respect the notes in the Annex II of the OECD guidance for a Responsible Global Supply Chain of minerals, this process is fully integrated in our operations. In order to ensure that our management and our employees are fully aware of the risk associated with trading, extracting, handling and exporting minerals from conflict affected and high risk areas.
