"Elbit Systems has a Conflict Minerals Compliance and Management Review Team (the “CM Team”) that supports compliance with the CM Rule, performs the RCOI and reports on conflict minerals. The multi-disciplinary CM Team consists of specially designated personnel from our purchasing, quality assurance, operations, materials engineering, information technology, finance and legal departments. The CM Team is supported by outsourced services from specialists in the conflict minerals compliance and RCOI process.
We rely on our suppliers to provide information on the origin of 3TG contained in components and parts included in our products. The identification of suppliers that are relevant to us under the CM Rule involves different geographic regions, business areas and production sites throughout our organization. The CM Team plays a leading role in coordinating the supplier identification efforts. Suppliers who were identified in 2018 to be relevant for our RCOI process were identified on the basis of criteria such as the level of purchasing activities with such supplier and the likelihood that the items furnished by the supplier contain 3TG. The processes performed and described in this Report cover more than 95% of our worldwide supply chain activities relevant to 3TG." p. 3
