Conflict Mineral Compliance
In August of 2012, the United States Security and Exchange Commission enacted regulations requiring certain companies to publicly disclose their use of tin, tungsten, tantalum and gold, collectively known as Conflict Minerals regarding their place of origin.
Conflict Minerals as defined by the Commission, originate in the Democratic Republic of Congo and its adjoining countries. The objective of the SEC regulations is to curtail the sale and trade of Conflict Minerals that may be directly or indirectly financing armed conflict, money laundering and human rights violations.
As a recycler of precious metals, including gold, Metallix Refining is responsible to do our due diligence to be in conflict minerals compliance. Compliance is achieved through our participation in the Anti-Money Laundering/USA Patriot Act, which requires thorough screening of all Suppliers and Prospective Suppliers of precious metal scrap to our company. In addition, Metallix Refining does not conduct business or accept material originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo, the adjoining countries and that region of the world.
Since 1970 the U.S. Government has been trying address the increasing criminal and terrorist activities funded through the laundering of “dirty” money into the legitimate financial system, through transfers, until it comes out looking “clean”. The Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) was established in 1970 and enforced by the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, a branch of the U.S. Treasury.
We provide a full turnkey solution, scheduling all transportation, preparing all logistical documents, efficient processing, or metal transfer purchase of your precious metal scrap.
Metallix takes AML compliance seriously and are consistently monitoring our procedures and taking steps to know our Suppliers before conducting any precious metal transaction.
