CONFLICT MINERALS POLICY STATEMENT

Danaher Corporation and its subsidiaries (“Danaher”) are committed to sourcing components and materials from companies that share our values regarding respect for human rights, integrity and environmental responsibility.

Danaher is committed to complying with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, as well as Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act, which aims to prevent the use of minerals that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or in adjoining countries (“conflict minerals”).

Suppliers to Danaher are required to commit to being or becoming “conflict-free” (which means that such supplier does not source conflict minerals) and sourcing only from conflict-free smelters.  Each supplier to Danaher is required to provide completed EICC-GeSI declarations evidencing such supplier’s commitment to becoming conflict-free and documenting countries of origin for the tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold that it purchases.
