Section 1 – Conflict Minerals Disclosure

 

ITEM 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure

 

Agilent Technologies, Inc. (“Agilent,” the “Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) is filing this Form SD pursuant to Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, for the reporting period January 1 to December 31, 2018.

 

Agilent is a global leader in life sciences, diagnostics and applied chemical markets, providing application focused solutions that include instruments, software, services and consumables for the entire laboratory workflow.

 

This Form SD should be read in conjunction with the definitions contained in the Securities and Exchange Commission instructions to Form SD and related rules. “Conflict minerals” refers to four specific metals regardless of their country of origin or whether they are used to finance or benefit armed conflict: tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold.

 

With respect to conflict minerals necessary to the functionality of products manufactured by Agilent, or contracted by Agilent to be manufactured, and required to be reported on Form SD for 2018, we conducted a reasonable country of origin inquiry concerning the source and chain of custody of the conflict minerals and performed supply chain due diligence.

 

 

Description of Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (“RCOI”)

 

Because of our size, the complexity of our products, and the depth, breadth, and constant evolution of our supply chain, it is difficult to identify material sources upstream from our direct suppliers. We rely on our direct material suppliers to provide information on the origin of the conflict minerals contained in components, materials and assemblies supplied to us - including sources of conflict minerals that are supplied to them from lower-tier suppliers.

 

In undertaking our RCOI, we conducted a targeted survey of our strategic and core direct material suppliers, utilizing the Responsible Minerals Initiative (“RMI”) Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”) version 5.11. Our direct material supply chain personnel worked directly with our suppliers, requesting their responses to the questions in the RMI CMRT with respect to their 2018 sales to Agilent. Suppliers’ CMRTs were evaluated for completeness, accuracy of information and consistency in the responses to questions and smelter lists. The RMI databases were utilized as part of the assurance process. Suppliers were contacted in regard to CMRTs which contained errors and/or omissions, and were requested to resubmit a corrected CMRT. This process occurred during the fourth calendar quarter of 2018 and first calendar quarter of 2019.

 

We believe this is a reasonable approach as it allowed us to canvas suppliers who represent the majority of our direct material expenditures in 2018.

Exhibit 1.01

AGILENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.

Conflict Minerals Report

For the Year Ended December 31, 2018

 

This Conflict Minerals Report (the “Report”) of Agilent Technologies, Inc. (“Agilent,” the “Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) is provided in accordance with Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Rule”) for the reporting period from January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018 (“Reporting Year”). The report covers all Agilent majority-owned subsidiaries and variable interest entities that are subject to the Rule.  

 

The Rule imposes certain due diligence and reporting obligations on US Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) registrants whose manufactured products (including products contracted to be made for each registrant) that contain “conflict minerals” necessary to the functionality or production of those products.  The Rule defines “conflict minerals” to include cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, gold, wolframite and their derivatives limited to tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold (collectively referred to as “3TGs”) regardless of their country of origin or whether they are used to finance or benefit armed groups.

 

Agilent is a leader in life sciences, diagnostics and applied chemical markets. Our company provides laboratories worldwide with instruments, services, consumables, applications and expertise. Our products that could contain conflict minerals are: liquid chromatography systems; liquid chromatography mass spectrometry systems; gas chromatography systems; gas chromatography mass spectrometry systems; inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry instruments; atomic absorption instruments; microwave plasma-atomic emission spectrometry instruments; inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry instruments; bioanalytical Instruments, microarray equipment, raman spectrometers and autostainers, laboratory automation and robotic systems; vacuum pumps and measurement technologies.

 

Agilent supports the goal of ending violence, human rights violations and environmental devastation in the Covered Countries. We are committed to complying with all requirements applicable to our company under the Conflict Minerals Rule. We are also committed to sourcing components and materials from organizations that share our values around human rights, ethics and environmental responsibility.

 

Agilent has adopted a conflict minerals policy to ensure compliance with Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that applies to all Agilent identified supply chain partners. Our policy is publicly available on our website: http://www.agilent.com/environment/Agilent_Conflict_Minerals_Policy_Statement.pdf

 

We are committed to working with suppliers who adhere to our environmental expectations and human rights policies, which are publicly available on our website: http://www.agilent.com/environment/env_expectations.shtml

 

 



 

REASONABLE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN INQUIRY (RCOI)

 

Our RCOI corresponds to the five-step OECD Due Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas (“OECD Guidance”).  The OECD Guidance provides a framework for detailed due diligence to support responsible global supply chain management of minerals and is currently the only internationally recognized framework for raw material due diligence.

 

The OECD Guidance (including its Supplements) applies to each of the 3TGs and to Agilent as a “downstream company.”  

 

Agilent typically does not purchase Conflict Minerals directly from mines, smelters or refiners.  Agilent’s supply chain is extensive and complex with many layers of suppliers positioned between us and 3TG raw materials smelters or processors (also known as “SORs.”).

 

For reporting purposes, we required our relevant direct suppliers to complete the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”) designed by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI).  Suppliers were instructed to upload their CMRT to a specific website but if they were unable to do so, they were then requested to submit their completed CMRT to us via email.

 

For the reporting year of 2018, we received responses from 100% of the in-scope suppliers surveyed.  We continue to work with our suppliers to improve the quality and completeness of their reports, and we provide feedback to suppliers if their reports are incomplete or inconsistent.

 

We conducted reasonable due diligence regarding the source and chain of custody of the conflict minerals in our products. Based on our efforts, we have reason to believe that some of the conflict minerals present in our supply chain may have originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) or adjoining countries (collectively the “Covered Countries”). We are unable to determine with assurance the origin of the conflict minerals in our products at this time and therefore cannot exclude the possibility that some conflict minerals may have originated in the DRC or Covered Countries.  For this reason, we are required under the Rule to submit this Conflict Minerals Report (CMR) as an exhibit to Agilent’s Form SD.

 

Agilent has taken the following measures to exercise due diligence on the source and chain of custody of Conflict Minerals in its products for this reporting period.

 

OECD Step 1: Strong Company Management Systems

 

Agilent has established a management system for conflict minerals policy to ensure compliance with Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that applies to all Agilent identified supply chain partners.  http://www.agilent.com/environment/Agilent_Conflict_Minerals_Policy_Statement.pdf .

 

We are committed to working with suppliers who adhere to our environmental expectations and human rights policies, which are publicly available on our website: http://www.agilent.com/environment/env_expectations.shtml

 

Agilent expects that all Suppliers shall comply with Agilent’s Supplier Code of Conduct.

2

 


 

Agilent has established a supplier-compliance process for its supply chain.  As part of this global process, suppliers receive a written communication regarding our supplier compliance requirements (including those relating to conflict minerals).  In addition, core and strategic suppliers on a scheduled basis are required to complete a verification survey to ensure compliance with Agilent’s supply chain requirements.

 

Agilent has also established a management team for overseeing conflict minerals compliance. The team supervising this program includes members of the Legal, Enterprise Regulatory Affairs and Supply Chain functions.  Their efforts are supported by Agilent’s General Counsel, as well as executive-level sponsorship.  Senior management is briefed about the results of our due diligence efforts before reviewing potential opportunities to improve it to mitigate risk.

 

Agilent has put in place the necessary controls to promote compliance with the SEC Rule.  Controls include, but are not limited to, our Standards of Business Conduct, which outlines expected behaviors for all Agilent employees and contractors and the Agilent Supplier Environmental and Social Responsibility Code of Conduct.

 

Agilent is committed to providing an anonymous grievance reporting mechanism for our employees, suppliers and other stakeholders who may be impacted by our operations.  We have put in place multiple mechanisms whereby employees and suppliers can report violations of Agilent’s policies, including an anonymous reporting hotline.

 

OECD Step 2: Identify and assess risks in the supply chain

 

We took the following steps to identify and assess supplier conflict mineral sourcing risk during this reporting year:

Based upon the Rule and SEC guidance, we generated a list of potential in-scope suppliers to receive Agilent’s annual CMRT survey.

Working with a third-party conflict minerals specialist, we surveyed all potential in-scope suppliers to determine the status of any 3TGs contained in components that we sourced from them during the 2018 reporting year. The survey followed OECD Guidance as tailored for Agilent’s role as a downstream company. Our survey included questions regarding the supplier’s raw material due diligence policies and procedures, its practices for engaging with its upstream suppliers, SORs from which its 3TGs were sourced, and the origins of 3TGs contained in the supplier’s products.

We reviewed all supplier CMRT submissions to validate their accuracy and to identify red flags or errors.  We worked with our third-party conflict minerals specialist to obtain updated responses from suppliers when necessary.

We identified 139 active in-scope suppliers for the 2018 reporting year. We obtained survey responses from all these suppliers resulting in  a 100 percent response rate.

 

Certain of the responses, provided by suppliers in their CMRT, included the names of facilities listed as smelters or refiners.  In most cases, we do not have a direct relationship with smelters and refiners and do not perform or direct audits of these entities within our supply chain.  We compared the smelters listed by our Suppliers’ in their CMRT Smelter List with the RMI’s Smelter Look-up Reference Table included in CMRT Version 5.11.  CMRTs with smelters or refiners found to not be included in this Reference Table were returned to the supplier for corrections.

 

3

 


 

All responses received provided data at a company or division level. In some cases, based on CMRT responses, we were unable to determine the specific smelters or refiners used for components, material or assemblies supplied to us. Therefore, we are unable to determine whether the conflict minerals reportedly in use by the suppliers were contained in components, parts or assemblies supplied to us. For example, suppliers did not always provide smelter lists or provided incomplete lists as they are dependent on their suppliers for complete smelter information.

 

Step 3 Design and implement a strategy to respond to identified risks

 

We reported to Agilent’s Global Supply Chain management and individual Category Managers with assigned account(s) on conflict minerals topics as part of the weekly status of Supplier CMRT collection efforts and risk categorization of Suppliers based on analysis of their CMRT submissions.

Agilent mapped Suppliers against the smelters that they reported in their CMRT to determine how many and which Suppliers to Agilent would need to change their upstream Suppliers to remove specific high-risk smelters from the supply chain.

We stayed informed of macro Conflict Minerals issues and developments through participation in the RMI.

 

Step 4: Carry out independent third-party audit of smelter(s)/refiner(s) due diligence practises

 

Agilent is a member of the RMI.  We use the RMI audit status (Responsible Minerals Assurance Process - RMAP), and RCOI information as key inputs to help us manage risk in our supply chain. We rely on the RMI to determine if smelters and refiners reported by our suppliers are Conformant with RMAP Conflict-Free management sourcing standards. These audit standards have been developed by the RMI to assess if smelters or refiners have management systems in place to support responsible sourcing practices.

 

We are unable to determine with assurance the origin of the conflict minerals in our products at this time and therefore cannot exclude the possibility that some conflict minerals may have originated in the DRC or Covered Countries. For this reason, we are required under the Rule to submit this Report as an exhibit to Agilent’s Form SD.

 

Step 5: Report annually on supply chain due diligence

 

Agilent complies with this step through this report filing and its related FORM-SD to the SEC and making it publicly available on the SEC website.

 

FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS

 

We conducted a targeted survey of 139 of our strategic and core direct material suppliers, who account for over 80-85% of our procurement spends in 2018. The targeted suppliers were requested to submit a CMRT of version 5.11.

 

Based on these responses, 322 RMI confirmed smelters that process conflict minerals have been identified as potentially being in our supply chain.  This is all the RMI-validated SORs that are listed in the RMI’s CMRT Version 5.11 Smelter Look-up Reference Table.  

 

4

 


 

Of these 322 SORs, on the date when Agilent’s updated CMRT was published, 251 smelters were Conformant with the RMI’s RMAP process and 6 were Active.  Combining these two classifications into Participating SORs, Agilent can report that 80% of the SORs in our 3TG Supply Chains are participating in the RMI’s RMAP program.

 

Based on the information received from suppliers regarding the SORs that processed the necessary conflict minerals in our products, we do not have sufficient information to definitively conclude the sources and countries of origin at the mine level.

 

We believe that our inquiries and investigations represent a reasonable effort to determine the mines or locations of origin of the conflict minerals in our products, including:

(1) Seeking information about conflict minerals smelters and refiners in our supply chain through requesting that our suppliers complete the CMRT; and

(2) Verifying those smelters and refiners with the RMI database.

 

Future Considerations

 

We will continue to investigate and implement opportunities, partnering with our suppliers, to improve Agilent’s conflict minerals due diligence process and to mitigate risk that the conflict minerals necessary in our products could benefit armed groups in the DRC and/or adjoining countries.

 

Continue to influence upstream sourcing practices to require the usage of RMAP-compliant SORs, including the use of Conflict-Free contract clauses.

 

Improve CMRT response completeness from in-scope direct suppliers through Agilent’s review and feedback to those suppliers using the most current SOR information.

 

Remain aware of developments in Conflict Minerals due diligence processes by participation in the RMI and apply that knowledge to Agilent’s risk assessment and mitigation actions

 

The table below includes smelters and refiners reported in Agilent’s supply chain as of December 31, 2018.
