Conflict Minerals

Automakers listed on the U.S. stock exchange, which are our end customers, are required to report to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding conflict minerals. Aisin works with business partners and industry groups to identify the origin and history of minerals used in products, and to avoid the use of conflict affected minerals. We provide these findings to our customers, and they use our products with confidence.

For more information regarding the government requirements for conflict minerals and additional reference information, please visit: http://www.responsiblemineralsinitiative.org/  This website includes the Conflict Mineral Reporting Template (CMRT) and Smelter Reference List which are available for download. The Smelter Reference List is maintained by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) for public reference.  It is the supplier’s responsibility to verify conflict-free smelters used to produce and/or ship products supplied to Aisin.
