Conflict Minerals Reporting

As part of the new Vendor Portal, we are looking to make the communication on key supply chain topics and issues easier. We want to ensure that the flow of information between CPS and our strategic partners in the supply chain is clear, concise, and easy to follow.

The importance of conflict minerals awareness within the global supply chain has been steadily increasing over the past 15 years. There has been an effort within the global economy to minimize the human rights violations and violence in geographical areas where these violations have been connected to mining operations of specific minerals.

CPS is committed to its high standards of operation and cooperation with the global efforts aimed at minimizing the conflicts and focusing on humanitarian efforts.

Because many of our HPB product line parts include high quality coatings of materials that are included on the targeted minerals list, we need to ensure that our partners are using approved sources and approved smelters in their processes.

In both cases, we need to ensure that our partners disclose their information so that it will become part of our production record, and traceability for our end customers. The link below is the current version of globally accepted template for reporting conflict minerals.

DRC Conflict-Free Minerals

The Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT) is controlled by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI). It is a standardized reporting template to facilitate transferring information regarding mineral country of origin and the smelters and refiners being utilized. The latest version of the CMRT can be found on the RMI website.
