On August 22nd, 2012, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) adopted a rule mandated by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 requiring companies to publicly disclose the use of conflict minerals (Tin, Tungsten, Tantalum or Gold) used in products, originating in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries. Linear Manufacturing has partnered with David Cheek, an Environmental Compliance Consultant to assess the impact on Linear and its customers. Mr. Cheek detailed the SEC requirements to assess whether or not Linear was subject to any of the requirements. Linear has provided a detailed letter below outlining Mr. Creek’s assessment and Linears statement. Download the PDF for a full statement.
