Section 1 – Conflict Minerals Disclosure
Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report
CSW Industrials, Inc. (including its consolidated subsidiaries, the “Company”) is filing this Form SD pursuant to Rule 13p-1 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Rule”) for the reporting period from January 1 to December 31, 2019 (the “Reporting Period”).
The Company manufactures or contracts to manufacture “products” that may contain certain “conflict minerals” (as defined below) that are necessary to the functionality or production of such products. The term “conflict mineral” is defined in Form SD as (i)(a) columbite-tantalite, also known as coltan (the metal ore from which tantalum is extracted); (b) cassiterite (the metal ore from which tin is extracted); (c) gold; and (d) wolframite (the metal ore from which tungsten is extracted), or their derivatives; or (ii) any other mineral or its derivatives determined by the U.S. Secretary of State to be financing conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country (collectively, the “Covered Countries”).
In accordance with the Rule and Form SD, the Company has conducted a good faith reasonable country of origin inquiry (“RCOI”) regarding the conflict minerals included in its products during the Reporting Period to determine whether any of such conflict minerals originated in the Covered Countries and/or whether any of such conflict minerals may be from recycled or scrap sources.
In accordance with the Rule, the Company has filed this Form SD and the associated Conflict Minerals Report, which appears as Exhibit 1.01 hereto and is publicly available on the Company’s website at www.cswindustrials.com.
Item 1.02 Exhibit
A description of the RCOI and the measures the Company took to exercise due diligence on the source and chain of custody of certain of its conflict minerals is provided in the Conflict Minerals Report attached hereto as Exhibit 1.01. The content on, or accessible through, any website referred to in this Form SD is not incorporated by reference into this Form SD unless expressly noted.
