Conflict Materials

Radar Inc. is fully aware of U.S. Congress HR 4173, specifically section 1502-Conflict Minerals and the resulting SEC reporting rule that applies to companies that use minerals including gold, tin, tantalum or tungsten (3T) if: (1) the company is required to file reports with the SEC under the Exchange Act and (2) the minerals are “necessary to the functionality or production” of a product manufactured or contracted to be manufactured by the company. The concepts of “contracting to manufacture” and “influencing the manufacture” are key elements of the SEC rule in determining supply chain requirements for conflict mineral declarations. These concepts are explained in the "Fact Sheet" included with the PDF version of our statement.

The SEC does not require companies to report on products in which they have no actual influence or control. As a traditional distributor of numerous major product lines, Radar Inc. neither manufactures, contracts to manufacture, nor influences the manufacture of the goods produced and sold by our suppliers, neither as a privately held company is Radar Inc. required to file reports with the SEC. Therefore does not meet the criteria required to complete the EICC GeSI Conflict Materials Reporting Template.

Information from manufacturers is becoming more readily available. Radar continues our earnest efforts to facilitate the timely flow of information as it becomes available.
