TTM Quality Assurance representatives may elect to conduct inspection either on a surveillance basis or to the extent of 100% inspection.

Right of Entry: Tri-Tec Manufacturing, their customers and regulatory and statutory authorities shall be granted the right of access to all sellers’ facilities involved in the order and all applicable quality records. We reserve the right to verify at the sellers premises that subcontracted product conform to specified requirements. Such verification shall not be used by the seller as evidence of effective control of quality by the supplier.
  16. Mercury, Polychlorinated Biphenyl and Asbestos: The supplier will ensure that all products or material supplied from them or their subcontractors has not been exposed to contaminated environments. We reserve the right to verify this at the seller or subcontractor’s premises.
  17. Conflict Minerals
In light of broad public concern over conflict minerals, suppliers who manufacture components, parts, or products containing tin, tantalum, tungsten, and/or gold must be particularly vigilant to follow commitment of sourcing those materials from environmentally and socially responsible sources only. Materials which contribute, either directly or indirectly, to conflict are unacceptable. Supplier shall define, implement and communicate to its sub-suppliers its own Conflict Mineral Policy (“CMP”), outlining its commitment to responsible sourcing and legal compliance and measures for implementation. Supplier shall work with its sub-suppliers to ensure traceability of these metals at least to smelter level. Traceability data shall be maintained and recorded for 5 years and provided to Tri-Tec Manufacturing upon request. Once such mechanisms are available, Supplier shall ensure that purchased metals originate from smelters validated by Supplier as being conflict mineral free. Supplier is encouraged to support industry efforts to enhance traceability and responsible practices in global minerals supply chains. 
Supplier hereby warrants that it is or will be in compliance with, and will require its subcontractors and any person under its control to comply with the CMP. Supplier represents that it has adopted and implemented appropriate and effective policies to ensure compliance with the CMP, including:
a.             The implementation of due diligence and data collection procedures reasonably designed to monitor compliance with its CMP;
b.             The establishment of internal review and accountability structures to oversee internal compliance with its CMP;
c.             The coordination of ongoing training and instruction for its employees regarding compliance with its CMP;
d.             The requirement that its subcontractors certify their compliance with the CMP; and
e.              The implementation of regular subcontractor audits, either directly or through a third-party
