Section 1 – Conflict Minerals Disclosure
This Specialized Disclosure Report on Form SD (“Form SD”) of AudioCodes Ltd. (“AudioCodes,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) for the year ended December 31, 2016 is presented to comply with Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report
AudioCodes evaluated its current product lines and determined that certain products we manufacture or contract to manufacture contain tin, tungsten, tantalum and/or gold, which are defined as “conflict minerals” by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, that are necessary to the functionality or production of our products. Accordingly, AudioCodes is filing this disclosure along with a Conflict Minerals Report to disclose the measures we have taken to determine the origin of the conflict minerals used in our products.
Conflict Minerals Disclosure
We undertook due diligence measures, including surveying our direct suppliers through an industry-standard survey template for conflict minerals, to try to determine the sources of these minerals, which we purchase through a complex supply chain. Currently, we do not have sufficient information from all our suppliers or other sources to determine the country of origin of the conflict minerals used in our products or identify the facilities used to process those conflict minerals.
A copy of our Conflict Minerals Report is filed as Exhibit 1.02 hereto. Our Conflict Minerals Report, as well as our Conflict Minerals Policy, are publicly available on our website at http://www.audiocodes.com/sustainability under the heading “About Us-AudioCodes Going Sustainable”. Except as expressly provided herein, the information on, or that can be accessed through, our website is not part of this Form SD.
