H.C. Starck receives certification for processing conflict-free tantalum raw materials for the seventh time in a row

  • Conflict-free raw material sourcing remains a key element of the H.C. Starck strategy
  • H.C. Starck has already now managed to fulfill the main requirements of the EU Conflict Minerals Regulation
Munich, February 8, 2018 - H.C. Starck, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of technology metals and advanced ceramics, has received the certification for processing of “conflict-free” tantalum raw materials the seventh year in a row. The audit included the subsidiary H.C. Starck Tantalum and Niobium GmbH and the associated company H.C. Starck Smelting GmbH & Co. KG. This means all subsidiaries that process tantalum at the Goslar, Mito, Tokyo, Map Ta Phut, and Laufenburg locations remain certified. The audit was performed by the independent company SGS, acting on behalf of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA formerly Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition EICC) and the Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP formerly Conflict-Free Smelter Program) as part of the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI, formerly CFSI).
