Conflict Minerals

The Seller recognizes, consistent with the public policy underlying enactment of the Conflict Minerals provision (Section 1502) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Act”), the significant legal and non-legal risks associated with sourcing tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold (the “Conflict Minerals”) from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and adjoining countries (“DRC countries”). Accordingly, the Seller commits to assist Buyer in its compliance with Section 1502 of Dodd-Frank and its implementing regulations. In particular, the Seller commits to have in place a supply chain policy and processes to undertake (1) a reasonable inquiry into the country of origin of Conflict Minerals incorporated into products it provides Buyer; (2) due diligence of its supply chain, as necessary, to determine if Conflict Minerals sourced from the DRC countries directly or indirectly support unlawful conflict there, and (3) risk assessment and mitigation actions necessary to implement the country of origin inquiry and due diligence procedures. The Seller agrees to timely respond to information requests from Buyer regarding the uses and sources of Conflict Minerals in its products including information about Conflict Minerals that are recycled or scrap. The Seller shall take all other measures as are necessary to comply with the Act and its implementing regulations, as they may be amended over time.  

Business Ethics

Seller shall adopt and comply with a policy statement or code of conduct regarding business ethics (“Code”). This Code will be suitable for Seller’s business and as a minimum will require compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. This provision creates no additional duties for Buyer with respect to Seller and confers no rights on third-parties. ADDITIONALLY, SELLER SHALL COMPLY, AND TAKE REASONABLE STEPS TO INSURE THAT ITS SUPPLIERS AND SUBCONTRACTORS COMPLY, WITH BUYER’S CODE OF BUSINESS CONDUCT AND ETHICS, WHICH IS INCORPORATED HEREIN BY REFERENCE. The Buyer’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics is located on the Buyer’s website at: http://www.magnetek.com/   Seller warrants that it has not, and will not, either directly or indirectly, offer or give to any employee or representative of Buyer, or any third party including government entities and officials, any gift, entertainment, gratuity, money or other thing of value, with a view toward influencing such person in connection with any order of Buyer. Any breach of this provision or Buyer’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics shall constitute a material breach of each and every contract between Buyer and Seller.  

Shipping Instructions

All goods shall be shipped FOB shipping point (Incoterms 2000), unless otherwise agreed.  Buyer’s purchase order(s) will specify Buyer’s preferred carrier.  Noncompliance by Seller to these shipping instructions will result in freight back-charges to the Seller.  Buyer reserves the right to reject C.O.D. shipments.  Seller shall not insure the goods for Buyer’s account during shipment except upon Buyer’s written request, or where the shipping mode is parcel post.  Time is of the essence under this order.
