The Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform and Consumer Protection Act (H.R.4173)("Act") signed into U.S. Law on July 21, 2010, requires the Securities and Exchange Commission to establish rules requiring disclosure and reporting procedures on the purchase and use of materials from conflict regions of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and the adjoining countries. As a manufacturer of products that contain gold, tantalum, tin, and tungsten, Planar is committed to operating in a socially responsible way to support the Act.
