Dodd- Frank Wall Street Reform Act (Section 1502)
Dura Magnetics fully supports the goals and objectives of Section 1502 (“Section 1502”) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Act”), which aims to prevent the use of certain “Conflict Minerals” that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries (as defined in the Act). “Conflict Minerals” include: columbite-tantalite (coltan) (i.e., tantalum), cassiterite (i.e., tin), gold, wolframite (i.e., tungsten) or their derivatives and could expand to include other minerals or their derivatives, as determined by the U.S. Secretary of State.

REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals)
We also strive to remain in compliance with REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals), a European Union law that originally went into effect on June 1, 2007. Regulated by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), its purpose is to strengthen the protection of human health and the environment from harmful effects that can be caused by chemicals. Dura Magnetics, Inc. is vigilant in monitoring the Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) in our magnetic parts, as the list continues to be updated in stages.
