Brainchild is taking due diligence within our supply chain to assure “DRC Conflict-Free” for the Minerals of gold (Au), tantalum (Ta), tungsten (W) and tin (Sn) are not derived from or sourced from mines in conflict areas of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), or illegally taxed on trade routes, either of which are controlled by non-governmental military groups, or unlawful military factions. Trade routes not confirmed to be “Conflict Free” include direct exports from the DRC, as well as exports through Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi, Tanzania and Kenya (countries of whom the U.N. Security Council note are global export routes for DRC-mined minerals).
Brainchild requires its suppliers to:
- To duly perform our environmental protection and social responsibility.
- To remove conflict materials from our supply chains.
- To trace all products containing gold (Au), tantalum (Ta), tungsten (W) and tin (Sn) sources, to ensure that these metals from sources other than the “conflict minerals”.
