Conflict Minerals

Westell Technologies Inc. Conflict Minerals Policy

Westell Technologies, Inc. (Westell) is committed to ensuring that products we receive from our suppliers are responsibly sourced. Certain materials such as tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold are essential in the manufacturing of many products, including most electronics. Quantities of these “Conflict Minerals” come from mines located in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and surrounding countries, where violence and human rights violations may be associated with or funded by the mining of these materials.  As a result, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 directed reporting and disclosure requirements related to Conflict Minerals.  Consistent with our Code of Conduct and other company policies, Westell will comply with these requirements, and we will assist our customers in doing so. In addition, as part of our commitment to responsible sourcing, Westell will work with our suppliers to ensure that only “conflict free” materials are used in our products.  We also will ask our suppliers to perform reasonable due diligence and evaluation of their supply chains to help demonstrate and document compliance.
