Suppliers are to comply with the following:
Aurora Flight Sciences endeavors to not purchase any material that contains “conflict minerals” which directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries. We are implementing reasonable due diligence processes to understand where “conflict minerals” are being used in our products and to determine the source and the origin within our supply chain. These actions are based on established frameworks of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and from other private sector initiatives. Due to the number of products we provide to our customers and the high complexity of the corresponding supply chains this will be a challenging and ongoing process. We are contacting our direct suppliers to increase the transparency of the materials they provide to Aurora Flight Sciences. We will continue to work closely with customers, suppliers and other stakeholders regarding good practices and feasible solutions.
