United PMR is proud to be certified by the E.I.C.C. (Electronic Industry Citizen Coalition) as a Conflict Free Gold Smelter and is one of a limited number of companies worldwide who have earned this certification.
United PMR is committed to using only “conflict-free” metals in their operations and has pledged that their metal is obtained from sources which adhere to acceptable human rights and labor practices. United PMR takes their corporate responsibilities very seriously and has always maintained a policy against accepting metal from questionable sources.
United PMR will continue to implement this practice under the stringent guidelines and regulations of their new CFS certification. Additionally, United PMR encourages their refining customers to have procedures in place to ensure compliance with current conflict-free guidelines.
The E.I.C.C. and GeSI have been leaders in developing guidelines to address responsible sourcing.
The CFS assessment is a program in which an independent third party evaluates a smelter’s procurement activities and determines if the smelter has demonstrated that all the materials they processed originated from conflict-free sources.
United PMR will continue to take all necessary steps to ensure their practices and procedures adhere to the prevailing standards of their new certification.
