Counterfeit & Fraudulent Product Avoidance Policy
By formally approving sources of supply and rigorously managing the supply chain, the risk of counterfeit parts shall be eliminated. Product shall always be procured through OEM'S directly, or their fully authorised Distributor network, who are specifically qualified to all required approvals for product supply e.g. Mil-Spec. NYK shall be vigilant at all times, and should there be any doubt or concern over parts or a supplier, the Managing Director and Quality Manager shall instigate an investigation, and all suspect parts will be suitably labelled and segregated by placement in a secure Quarantine Store pending the outcome of that investigation. Counterfeit, non-genuine or modified parts pose a risk. Every effort shall be taken to ensure any such products do not reach the market place. NYK will not simply return parts to the supplier, but rather reserve the right to deface any suspect parts and notify appropriate authorities and escalate to protect the industry. Customers who may be potentially affected shall be notified as soon as possible.

RoHS & REACH Compliance Statement
EU DIRECTIVE 2002/95/EC (RoHS 1) & 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2) RESTRICTION of HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES
RoHS Compliance: NYK Component Solutions Ltd is a distributor of electrical interconnect components and accessories that does not perform testing of products and relies solely on the manufacturer of the product for identification of RoHS compliance. NYK Component Solutions Ltd makes no warranty, certification, or declaration of RoHS compliance for any of the products sold.The above directives stipulate maximum concentrations of certain hazardous substances. To the best of our knowledge, product that NYK currently supplies your company, either do not contain the listed hazardous substances, or the concentrations are less than the permitted maximums stated in the Directive.
REACH Compliance: NYK Component Solutions Ltd is not considered a manufacturer, importer, downstream end user, or registrant under Article 3 of REACH. Thus, NYK Component Solutions Ltd has no responsibility to register any of the components or supplies we distribute. However, we do have the responsibility to communicate Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) information throughout the supply chain when provided by the manufacturer, per article 33 of the directive. Suppliers are required, per the NYK Components Solutions Ltd's Supplier Quality Requirements, to notify us before shipping any homogeneous material products that have greater than 0.1% SVHC. If this occurs, the information will be communicated to the customer for disposition. NYK expects manufacturers who consider or have reason to believe that products which they have placed on the market are not in conformity with this Directive immediately take the necessary corrective measures to bring that product into conformity, to withdraw it or recall it, if appropriate, and immediately inform the competent national authorities of the Member States in which they made the product available to that effect, giving details, in particular, of the non-compliance and of any corrective measures taken.

Statement on Conflict Minerals
NYK supports ending the violence and human rights violations reportedly supported by profits from the sale of certain metals mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries. Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act promotes transparency and consumer awareness of the use by U.S. publicly traded companies of "conflict minerals" (tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold, or 3TG) that directly or indirectly benefit armed groups in that region. In response to Dodd-Frank, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has imposed disclosure requirements on publicly traded companies (together with the Dodd-Frank Act, the "Rule") concerning the use of 3TG in products, the origin of the metals used if they are not "conflict free". While there is 3TG in some products that we sell, we do not purchase the metals directly from smelters or mines. Neither do NYK manufacture or influence the manufacture of products containing 3TG. However, should NYK become aware of a supplier whose supply chain includes metals from a non-conflict free source, we will take the appropriate actions to remedy the situation as contemplated by the Rule. Our expectation is that our suppliers will do the same so that we maintain alignment with the requirements of the Rule throughout the entire supply chain. NYK are committed to upholding the purpose of The Rule by the choices that we make in any area that will support the goals and deadlines specified by the Rule.
Kevin Wells. CEO July2017 Issue 1
NYK Ltd understand the importance of the industrial market life cycle and our general policy is to avoid product obsolescence. However, in today's rapidly changing world, components become obsolete for many reasons, including continual advances in technologies. The majority of our products are standard catalogue parts built to industry standards. In the event that NYK Ltd has to discontinue a product due to component obsolescence, we will make every effort to provide a product with the same form, fit and functionality without changing the product design. Future designs of new products, utilizing improved technologies, always take into account, form, fit and functionality of previous designs. NYK apply a systematic process for planned obsolescence of older designs, allowing sufficient time for last-time buys or and/or time to migrate to newer products. NYK products go through four stages from active product to inactive product. The timing of these stages is dependent upon component availability as well as other factors.
Definition of these stages are:
Active: Part is readily available for sale. Service and support is available.
End of life announced: Product will be phased out at some time in the future. Replacement strategy has been developed.
End of life established: Sale of parts limited to existing inventory.
Inactive: Part is no longer available for sale. Customers will be referred to recommended replacement. Service and support available, contingent on component availability
NYK provide excellent application engineering support, backed by an intensive cross-reference database which identifies direct, or as near as direct as possible, replacements.
Kevin Wells. CEO July2017 Issue 1
