Responsible Supply
As a leading company in the Metal industry, we are committed to ensuring that the Metal under our control is responsibly and ethically sourced.
Over the last decade, quantities of Tin (and other "conflict" metals such as Copper, tungsten and gold)have entered the global supply chain from locations, particularly war-torn parts of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), where the ore has been mined illegally or without regard and commitment to health, safety, environment, labour conditions and human rights.
We have had a long-term commitment to working closely with our industry, including the end-users of Tin products, to put in place strategies that will ensure the responsible supply of Tin material.
For this reason we are an active member of the iTSCi and support its creation of a comprehensive set of tools and processes to enable the credible implementation of a Code of Conduct throughout the supply chain. We adhere closely to the Conflict Minerals policies of the EICC and participate actively in the Conflict Free Smelter program.

As a leader in Metal Sourcing, serving the end consumers of tin metal products, Sizer Metals Pte Ltd, Singapore is highly committed to offering the safest work environment to our employees and contractors and in ensuring that our work practices are environmentally responsible. This policy is further reflected in our commitment to serving as an industry champion for a conflict-free supply chain.
In our pursuit to eliminate the unlawful and immoral activities surrounding the trade and use of minerals mined in conflict-affected areas, Sizer Metals joined the ITSCII in 2016. The EICC, comprised of leading companies throughout the electronics industry, strives to improve working conditions, ethics, and environmental stewardship throughout the complex electronics industry supply chain.  As an active member of the ITSCII, Sizer Metals Pvt. Ltd. have been subject procurement only rigorous Conflict Free Smelter audit program and we proudly maintain a "Conflict-Free Smelter" status.
Our mission is to drive awareness throughout the industry so that all Tin conflict materials are eliminated from all industry supply chains.  To fulfill this mission Sizer metals commits to the following actions:
  • Work cooperatively with organizations and agencies such as the ITSCII, ITRI and EICC Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), International Tin Research Institute (ITRI), and International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR) to establish credible and effective processes that isolate and eliminate non-ethical Tin mining and trade, and allow continuation of legitimate activity in "conflict regions."
  • Support the ongoing efforts by relevant authorities that have the potential to ensure legitimate, socially responsible commerce and bring sustainable improvements in living conditions and economic stability in conflict-regions.
  • Comply with applicable legislation such as, the U.S. Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (July, 2010), which encourages legitimate, conflict-free trade of minerals sourced from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and the Great Lakes Region of Africa.
  • Ensure that all purchases from "conflict regions" such as the DRC, comply with the applicable requirements of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains.
  • Require that all Sizer metals shipments of Tin containing material adhere to the appropriate domestic and international transportation regulations, including Class 7, Radioactive Materials. Sizer metals advocates the tin Industry also complies with these international regulations.
  • Communicate our ethical and sustainable sourcing policy to our suppliers, employees, customers and investors and perform internal monitoring of our performance to these standards.
We strongly encourage all organizations involved in Tin mining, manufacturing, or the use of Tin products to join us in keeping conflict minerals out of our supply chain.
