Conflict Minerals

Newport is committed to obtaining parts and supplies from businesses that share our values regarding human rights and ethical practices. To that end, Newport adheres to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission final conflict minerals rules promulgated under Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. To comply with such rules, Newport has implemented due diligence measures to determine the country of origin and the source and chain of custody of conflict minerals (namely, tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold) contained in Newport's products. We require support and assistance from our suppliers in our compliance efforts, and we have an expectation that our suppliers will (i) conduct reasonable due diligence on the country of origin and the source and chain of custody of conflict minerals contained in materials and components supplied to Newport, and (ii) move toward "conflict-free" sourcing. Below is a link to Newport's Policy Regarding Conflict Minerals. Suppliers must adhere to this policy in order to remain an approved and qualified supplier of Newport.
