As a factory specialized in tantalum and niobium products, we Changsha South Tantalum Niobium Co.,Ltd support ending the violence and human rights violations in the mining of certain minerals (gold, as well as tin,tantalum and tungsten,derivatives of cassiterite,columbite-tantalite and wolframite)from a location described as the“Conflict Region”,which is situated in the eastern portion of the Democratic Republic of the Congo(DRC)and surrounding countries.We fully support the CFS program proposed by EICC-GESI.

Our commitment:

1.Do not knowingly procure specified metals that originate from facilities in the “Conflict Region” that are not certified as “conflict free”.

2.Ensure compliance with these requirements,and ask our suppliers to undertake reasonable due diligence with their supply chains to assure that specified metals are being sourced only from:
·Mines and smelters outside the "Conflict Region" or
·Mines and smelters which have been certified by an independent third party as "conflict free" if sourced within the "Conflict Region".

3.Value the recycle for the Tantalum material. We cooperate with customers and other Tantalum Niobium end-users to make the legal source Tantalum and Niobium secondary materials recycled and make the “green” Tantalum and Niobium raw material to be used circularly.

Our products: tantalum sheet, tantalum foil, tantalum tube, and other tantalum products, and Niobium products.
