Non-Conflict Minerals Policy
Realtek commenced conflict minerals investigation and management in 2010. Suppliers are required to provide a Conflict Mineral Policy Statement in accordance with the Conflict-Free Smelter Program (CFSP), the Responsible Business Alliance, and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI), in order to demonstrate that the metals used in their products did not come from conflict-affected and high risk areas. Realtek adopted the latest RMI standard as well as the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template for due diligence survey for tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold to ensure that the minerals in our products all come from RMI approved smelters or nations. In April 2021, we implemented an automated management system for our supplier conflict mineral reporting. Suppliers shall regularly update their information to our responsible units so that we can monitor the information in a timely manner.
Supplier Conflict Mineral Reporting System
Realtek uses raw mineral materials from 225 smelters from 39 countries. 100% of our suppliers use smelters with RMI certification. We prohibit minerals from non-government or regions or neighboring countries of the Democratic Republic of the Congo where illegal military groups hold power. Realtek will continue to closely monitor and manage raw material sources of our suppliers to fulfill our CSR commitment towards banning the use of conflict minerals.
