Conflict Minerals

Advance Research Chemicals is committed to ensuring the safety, health and protection of all people and our global environment. As required by the Conflict Minerals provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, HR 4173, Section 1502 (“Conflict Minerals Act”), ARC will request certification from our suppliers to confirm that their supply of materials do not contain conflict minerals that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country.

ARC continuously takes action to the extent practical to attempt to ensure that minerals from the conflict region do not enter our supply chain, including obtaining reliable certificates of origin for all materials that might possibly originate in conflict areas or an adjoining country.

In addition, ARC adheres to the Code of Conduct established by the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA, formerly EICC). The Code of Conduct can be found here.
