Conflict Minerals Report

For The Year Ended December 31, 2021

 

Introduction

 

This Conflict Minerals Report for Stereotaxis, Inc. (“Stereotaxis”, “we,” “us,” and “our”) is for the period from January 1 to December 31, 2021 and is presented to comply with Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Rule”). Terms used in this report are defined in the Rule and Form SD. Refer to those sources and to SEC Release No. 34-67716 issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 22, 2012 for such definitions.

 

Stereotaxis designs, manufactures and markets an advanced robotic magnetic navigation system for use in a hospital’s interventional surgical suite, or “interventional lab”, that we believe revolutionizes the treatment of arrhythmias by enabling enhanced safety, efficiency, and efficacy for catheter-based, or interventional, procedures. Our primary products include the Genesis RMN System, the Odyssey Solution, and related devices. We also offer to our customers the Stereotaxis Imaging Model S x-ray System.

 

The Genesis RMN System is designed to enable physicians to complete more complex interventional procedures by providing image-guided delivery of catheters through the blood vessels and chambers of the heart to treatment sites. This is achieved using externally applied magnetic fields that govern the motion of the working tip of the catheter, resulting in improved navigation, efficient procedures, and reduced x-ray exposure.

 

In addition to the robotic magnetic navigation systems and their components, Stereotaxis also has developed the Odyssey Solution, which consolidates lab information enabling physicians to focus on the patient for optimal procedure efficiency. The system also features a remote viewing and recording capability called Odyssey Cinema, which is an innovative solution that delivers synchronized content for optimized workflow, advanced care, and improved productivity. This tool includes an archiving capability that allows clinicians to store and replay entire procedures or segments of procedures. This information can be accessed from locations throughout the hospital local area network and over the global Odyssey Network providing physicians with a tool for clinical collaboration, remote consultation, and training.

 

This Report describes the process and results of Stereotaxis’ Conflict Minerals program. Stereotaxis performed a Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (RCOI) to determine the source of necessary conflict minerals in our products, and in accordance with the Rule then undertook due diligence measures on the source and chain of custody of those necessary conflict minerals. The purpose of this due diligence was to determine if any of the necessary conflict minerals originated from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) or an adjoining country (collectively defined as the “Covered Countries”) and may not have come from recycled or scrap sources, to determine whether such products are “DRC conflict free.”

 

Consistent with the provisions of the Rule, this Conflict Minerals Report has not been audited by an independent private sector auditor.

 

 

 

 

Design of Conflict Minerals Program and Due Diligence Process

 

Stereotaxis has a Conflict Minerals program designed to be in conformance with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, 3rd Edition, including the Supplement on Tin, Tantalum and Tungsten, and the Supplement on Gold (collectively, the “OECD Guidance”). In the context of the OECD Guidance Stereotaxis is a “downstream company” in the conflict minerals supply chain. Summarized below are the five due diligence steps taken which align with the OECD Guidance five-step framework:

 

1. Maintained a strong company management system:
     
  a) We have a Conflict Minerals Policy. The policy has been communicated to our direct suppliers and can be found on our website at http://www.stereotaxis.com/legal/.
  b) We have an internal cross-functional Conflict Minerals team that oversees the implementation of our Conflict Minerals program. The status of our Conflict Minerals program is reviewed with senior management. We maintain records relating to our Conflict Minerals program.
  c) We have a system of controls and transparency over our supply chain using the industry-standard Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”), which is a supply chain survey designed to identify the maturity of our suppliers’ conflict minerals programs and identify the smelters and refiners that process the necessary conflict minerals contained in their products.
  d) We have informed our suppliers of our company policy, and our commitment to be DRC conflict free. Where suppliers are unaware of conflict minerals regulations or have an immature process, we seek to educate them.
  e) We have a company-level grievance mechanism whereby anyone can confidentially call or email a concern or report a violation of a policy. This can be found in the Ethics and Commitment / Confidential Hot-line section of our website at http://www.stereotaxis.com/legal/.

 

2. Identified and assessed risks in the conflict minerals supply chain:

 

  a) We identified conflict minerals risks in our supply chain:
       
    We identified all direct suppliers that supply us with products that might contain Conflict Minerals intentionally added and necessary for the functionality of those products.
    We conducted a Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (RCOI) with relevant suppliers of parts and materials used in products manufactured by Stereotaxis.
    We requested our direct suppliers provide us with a completed industry-standard CMRT. The CMRT includes a section identifying evidence of an active corporate conflict minerals program/policy by each respective supplier, as well as a list of Smelters or Refiners in the supplier’s conflict mineral supply chain.
    We followed up with unresponsive suppliers, making multiple attempts to obtain information.
    We reviewed CMRT’s and any other documentation provided by our suppliers for completeness and reasonableness. We categorized suppliers according to the responses provided.
       
  b) We assessed risks of adverse impacts by actively working to discontinue sourcing products from upstream suppliers when we identified a reasonable risk that they are sourcing from, or linked to any party committing serious abuses, consistent with Annex II of the OECD Guidance.

 

3. Designed and implemented a strategy to respond to identified risks:

 

  a) We identified the results of our RCOI and identified high risk suppliers to senior management.
  b) We have a risk management plan that includes seeking to reduce or eliminate high risk suppliers.
  c) We have an ongoing risk reduction and management program, which includes a goal that all future product designs are DRC conflict free, periodically reviewing and updating the conflict minerals status of our existing products and striving over time to reduce or eliminate non-conflict-free minerals from the supply chain.
  d) We monitored, and will continue to monitor changes in supplier conflict minerals status, as circumstances change with suppliers and as conflict minerals status ripples through the supply chain to end item manufacturers such as Stereotaxis.

 

4. Carried out independent third-party audit of supply chain due diligence at identified points in the supply chain:

 

  a) We engage a third-party which has a comprehensive Verification, Outreach and Due Diligence Process which provides us with detailed information and audit results related to the smelters or refiners in our supply chain.

 

 

 

 

5. Reported on supply chain due diligence:

 

  a) We publicly communicated our Conflict Minerals Sourcing Policy on our company website at http://www.stereotaxis.com /legal/.
  b) We publicly disclosed this Conflict Minerals Report on our company website at http://www.stereotaxis.com /legal/.
  c) As allowed by the Rule, obtaining an independent private sector audit of this Report was not required.

 

The content of any website referred to in this Report is included for general information only and is not incorporated by reference in this Report.

 

Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry Results

 

Following the Conflict Minerals program described above, Stereotaxis identified 157 suppliers and original equipment manufacturers in our direct supply chain. We identified 116 of those suppliers as the ones who provide us with components, materials and assemblies where Conflict Minerals are present and necessary to functionality, or for which we were unsure whether the materials or components contained Conflict Minerals. We then performed a RCOI with those 116 suppliers and requested each of them to supply us with a CMRT. 89 of those suppliers provided us with a CMRT.

 

The CMRT’s we received contained a large number of smelter or refiner names for the facilities these suppliers and their upstream suppliers use to process Conflict Minerals, as well as the specific Conflict Mineral(s) used in their products. After correction, review, and removal of duplicate or alternate names, and elimination of entities we determined were not actually smelters or refiners, and elimination of entities for which we were unable to determine if they were a relevant smelter or refiner, we identified 333 unique smelters.

 

Of the 333 identified smelters or refiners in our supply chain, our analysis leads us to believe that:

 

  49 smelters are known to source, or there is reason to believe they may source, Conflict Minerals from the Covered Countries.
  54 smelters have unknown countries of origin for their minerals, and additionally are not certified as conformant. Therefore, we cannot, at this time, determine whether or not any of those smelters might have sourced Conflict Minerals from the Covered Countries.

 

In accordance with the SEC final rules for Conflict Minerals sourced from Covered Countries, because some smelters in our supply chain were identified to be sourcing from Covered Countries, Stereotaxis is required to exercise, and has exercised, due diligence on the Conflict Minerals’ source and chain of custody. Additionally, Stereotaxis is required to follow, and has followed, a nationally or internally recognized due diligence framework (specifically the OECD Guidance) and report the results thereof in a Conflict Minerals report.

 

Due Diligence Process Results

 

Of the 49 smelters in our supply chain that are known to source Conflict Minerals from the Covered Countries, Stereotaxis’ due diligence review indicates:

 

  44 smelters have active certifications, or are in the process of renewing their certification as a conformant smelter by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP). In addition, 6 of these 44 smelters also have London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) Responsible Gold Certifications.
  3 Tin smelters are activity moving through the RMAP certification process.
  2 smelters do not have conflict-free certifications, and we have no knowledge that they are pursuing certification at this time.

 

 

 

 

Based upon responses received from our suppliers as part of RCOI, and our due diligence efforts, we have not been able to confirm that all smelters reported by our suppliers as being in our supply chain are DRC conflict-free.

 

Stereotaxis did not discontinue business with any supplier simply because the supplier sourced conflict minerals from the Covered Countries. We support conflict-free minerals trade in the DRC region.

 

Product Determination

 

Based upon responses received from our suppliers as part of RCOI, we have not been able to confirm the identification of all smelters in our supply chain, nor confirm that all smelters reported by our suppliers as being in our supply chain are DRC conflict-free.

 

Facility and Mine Information

 

The table below identifies all the smelter or refiner facilities which, to the extent known as a result of our RCOI, processed the necessary conflict minerals contained in our products. A “Yes” entry in the rightmost column indicates the smelter or refiner has received a conformant smelter designation from an independent third-party audit program.

Steps to be Taken to Mitigate Risk

 

Stereotaxis plans to continue to work with our suppliers as deemed appropriate to help them understand and satisfy our conflict-free and reporting expectations. We will continue to monitor the progress of suppliers which report to be sourcing from non-conformant smelters believed to source conflict minerals from the Covered Countries, work to improve supplier response rates, and continue to evolve our internal due diligence determination process.

 

Additional Risk Factors

 

Our conflict minerals disclosure is made in good faith and based on our best efforts. However, other factors could have led to errors in the disclosure. They include, but are not limited to gaps in supplier data, error in supplier knowledge, gaps in smelter auditing processes, errors in public data, errors in language translation, and delays in reporting data through the lengthy supply chain that exists between the upstream smelters or refiners and Stereotaxis as an end-item manufacturer.
