"The Company’s Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (“RCOI”) for calendar year 2018 was designed to determine whether the conflict minerals necessary to the functionality or production of a product manufactured (or contracted to be manufactured) by the Company originated in the Covered Countries, or are from recycled or scrap sources. The Company established a system of controls designed to promote transparency over the conflict minerals in its supply chain. The Company identified suppliers that were considered in-scope and subject to the RCOI (“In-Scope Suppliers”). Through communications with these suppliers, the Company attempted to identify smelters and refiners of conflict minerals that may be utilized in products supplied to Johnson Controls."

The questions on the Surveys included, but were not limited to, the use of conflict minerals and their necessity to product functionality or production, the origin of such conflict minerals, and whether smelters have been validated as RMI compliant.
