Conflict Minerals

Analog Devices is committed to sound ethical practices and full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations concerning sourcing of conflict minerals. We are a member of the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) which was founded by RBA to facilitate responsible sourcing of conflict minerals in the electronics supply chain. ADI adopted the framework of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas to facilitate responsible sourcing and fulfill the reporting obligations related to conflict minerals.

Our Conflict Minerals policy, available in PDF form HERE and is a key component of our management system:

  • it reflects ADI’s commitment to ethical practices and compliance with applicable laws and regulations,
  • it includes ADI’s actions on collaborating with other concerned electronics companies, under the RMI, in developing methods to track the origin of tantalum, tungsten, tin, and gold (3TG) used in the manufacture of electronic products,
  • it reflects ADI’s support of the Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP) in assessing activities, processes, and systems used by the Smelter or Refiner (SOR) facility to conduct upstream supply chain due diligence of minerals for conflict-affected and high-risk areas, and
  • it is communicated to ADI’s supply chain with the expectation of compliance with this conflict minerals policy, and for the suppliers to provide sourcing information using the RMI Conflict Minerals Reporting Template as standard.
