Jacinto Blanco—Manager of Supplier Diversity
Yanfeng Automotive Interiors expects our suppliers to conduct their operations in a socially and environmentally responsible manner including compliance to all applicable laws and regulations.
In July 2010, US law: Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act began to be enforced . The new law imposes requirements relating to “Conflict Minerals”. Conflict minerals are “minerals mined in conditions of armed conflict and human rights abuses…” The law focuses on 4 Minerals which are source of Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten & Gold (often called as “3TG”). Automotive Industry issued official letter via AIAG (Automotive Industry Action Group) in 2011 which communicates expectations related to reporting and disclosure requirements for conflict minerals and human right abuses. Companies listed on NY SC (New York Stock Exchange) have duties to provide report to US authorities therefore customers e.g. Honda, Ford, GM, Toyota expect Conflict Minerals reporting from Yanfeng Automotive Interiors (YFAI). In order to meet our various customer’s expectations YFAI must collect relevant Conflict Minerals information from our supplier chain.
- Preferred response tool is iPCMP (iPont Conflict Minerals Platform) which Basic License is free of charge
- Supplier Contact Letter: communication of CM responsible person to YFAI-EC-ConflictMinerals@yfai.com
- CMRT Template: developed by Conflict Free Sourcing Initiative (CFSI) for Conflict Minerals supply chain investigation
