Amkor's Conflict Minerals Policy Statement Amkor Technology: Conflict Minerals Policy Statement

There are significant worldwide concerns that metals mined in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the surrounding region (collectively, the “DRC Region”) may be making their way into the electronics supply chain, and that profits from this mining may be financing human rights violations in the DRC Region.  Amkor is committed to a policy that (i) our supply chain does not knowingly contribute to human rights violations in the DRC Region, and (ii) the gold, tantalum, tungsten, or tin that we procure from our suppliers is not sourced from mines in the conflict areas of the DRC Region or illegally taxed on trade routes which are controlled by non-government military groups or unlawful military factions. We have taken a number of actions to achieve a conflict-free Supply Chain, including the following:

  • Amkor is a full member of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC), a coalition of the world’s leading electronics companies working together to improve efficiency and social, ethical, and environmental responsibility in the global electronics supply chain.


  • We set expectations with our major suppliers to achieve a conflict-free Supply Chain.  As part of our discussions, we survey our suppliers on their sources of tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold.


  • We participate in the EICC Conflict-Free Smelter Program in which an independent third party evaluates a smelter’s procurement activities and determines if the smelter can demonstrate that all the materials they process originate from conflict-free sources.
