We have a responsibility to source materials and supplies responsibly, as well as a duty to comply with the laws concerning conflict minerals.
As a member of the OSI Systems family, we are committed to sourcing materials and supplies from companies that share our values with regard to ethics and integrity, respect for human rights, and environmental responsibility.
This includes the sourcing of conflict minerals, which are minerals mined in conditions of armed conflict and human rights abuses, and sold or traded by armed groups. International law recognizes that minerals from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) region present a specific risk in this regard, and requires companies trading in natural resources from the DRC to do so in a way which is socially, economically, and environmentally responsible.
We aim to achieve a ‘“conflict free’ supply chain – that is, a supply chain that does not directly or indirectly finance armed groups through mining or mineral trading in the DRC region. We require complete supply chain transparency from all of our suppliers and vendors to achieve this goal.
We are also committed to complying with Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act relating to the use of tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold – conflict minerals associated with financing regional violence and an ongoing civil war in the DRC and its adjacent countries.
Communicating with suppliers
Suppliers must be notified of our Conflict Minerals Policy when we start doing business with them. At a minimum, a reference to the policy (or a URL linking to the policy on the corporate OSI website) must appear on all purchase orders, master supply agreements (MSAs), and other applicable agreements issued by OSI Systems. As a condition of our business relationship, all suppliers will be required to provide accurate and transparent information about the origin of all products supplied to our company.
Our commitment to customers
We firmly believe our customers should be fully informed about the products they purchase.
While we cannot certify as to the country of origin of the minerals contained in the products manufactured by our suppliers, we are committed to working with our customers to supply products that meet our customer’s specifications.
