Exhibit 1.01


Conflict Minerals Report

For the Year Ended December 31, 2016

The report for the year ended December 31, 2016 is presented to comply with Rule 13p-1 under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Rule”). The Rule was adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) to implement reporting and disclosure requirements related to conflict minerals as directed by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (“Dodd-Frank Act”). The Rule imposes certain reporting obligations on SEC registrants whose manufactured or contracted to manufacture products contain conflict minerals which are necessary to the functionality or production of their products. Conflict minerals are defined as cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, gold, wolframite, and their derivatives, which are limited to tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold (“3TG”). These requirements apply to registrants whatever the geographic origin of the conflict minerals and whether or not they fund armed conflict. In accordance with the instructions to Form SD, this Conflict Minerals Report (“CFM”) has not been audited by an independent private sector auditor.

If a registrant can establish that the conflict minerals originated from sources other than the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) or an adjoining country (the “Covered Countries”), or from recycled and scrap sources, they must submit a Form SD which describes the Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (“RCOI”) completed.

AMETEK’s products are “DRC Conflict Undeterminable.” The report presented herein is not audited.


AMETEK consists of two business groups: Electronic Instruments Group and Electromechanical Group. Electronic Instruments is in the design and manufacture of advanced instruments for the aerospace, power, process and industrial markets. Electromechanical is a differentiated supplier of electrical interconnects, precision motion control solutions, specialty metals, thermal management systems, and floor care and specialty motors.

The electronic instruments and electromechanical products we manufacture are numerous and many are complex, from direct and indirect suppliers. AMETEK has relationships with a vast network of suppliers (over 17,000 direct and indirect suppliers) throughout the world and there are generally multiple tiers between the 3TG mines and our direct suppliers. Based on our downstream position in the supply chain, we must rely on our direct suppliers that may themselves procure these minerals far removed from the actual source making it difficult to determine the 3TG country of origin, chain of custody, and whether these minerals directly or indirectly financed or benefited armed groups in the DRC or covered countries.

In 2016, AMETEK continued the previous year’s focus on suppliers providing at least $300K of parts annually. Although most suppliers provided the information requested, some still needed to respond to our requests or responded with a specific CFM status without providing supporting details. AMETEK will continue to diligently pursue receipt of satisfactory and conclusive details regarding the supply chain of conflict minerals our Suppliers are providing to us. For the period ending December 31, 2016, our CFM efforts resulted in the following Conflict Minerals Metrics for our entire organization, regardless of supplier spend.

2016 CFM Status by Spend
CONFLICT FREE      15%  
EXEMPT      66%  
UNKNOWN        7%  

For the next reporting year (2017 production), AMETEK’s focus will continue to be on increasing our suppliers’ response rates to our request for complete and accurate Templates with the ultimate goal of achieving a conflict-free supply chain.

The remainder of this report will provide the supporting details of our Conflict-free Minerals due diligence approach and results for the 2016 production year.

Conflict-free Minerals Due Diligence Program

Pursuant to the Rule, we performed due diligence on the source and origin of 3TG in our products, including the Components we purchase from suppliers. Our due diligence measures have been designed to conform to The Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development (“OECD”) due diligence framework. This risk-based due diligence process is based on the following OECD Guidance:


  1. Establish strong company management systems
  2. Identify and assess risk in the supply chain
  3. Design and implement a strategy to respond to identified risk
  4. Carry out independent 3rd party audit of the supply chain (e.g., audit high risk suppliers or smelters)
  5. Report on supply chain due diligence internally to management

In order to identify and assess risks associated with CFM we begin with careful filtering our products to isolate those that may contain 3TG that is necessary to the functionality or manufacture of our products. A categorization of suppliers and individual components purchased is in place that results in every purchased item having a CFM status assigned. We are then able to identify and engage relevant suppliers by initiating a RCOI to determine whether supplied parts containing 3TG originated in the DRC or one of the covered countries or are from recycled or scrap sources. Given the number of products impacted and the complexity of the associated supply chains, our RCOI involves numerous telephone and email inquiries along with the exchange of thousands of CFM Templates and other supporting documents. To effectively manage this process, a CFM compliance owner has been identified for each of our 136 factory locations. The Compliance Owner is tasked with ensuring responses from their supply base. A central repository is used to store supplier contact details along with part-specific CFM information and the e-mail address is used to facilitate corporate-initiated supplier communications.

The greatest risk associated with our conflict-free efforts was quickly identified as non-participating suppliers. AMETEK’s response included reaching out to identified suppliers a minimum of 3 times to obtain complete CMR Templates. Response rates were initially low as most of our suppliers had to flow down the CFM requirements through many levels in the supply chain. For the participating suppliers, initial documentation was often incomplete requiring each response to be continually reviewed and assessed for further investigation.



An additional data gathering challenge has been to obtain complete CFM data from companies that currently are not part of the direct SEC reporting regulations. Included in this Group are Smelters/Refiners, Distributors, and private or internationally based companies. For the 2016 production year, AMETEK chose to continue to focus on our Tier 2 supply, defined as suppliers providing at least $300K of parts annually. This allowed us to strategically align our efforts to a controlled number of companies in the best position to participate in our CFM data gathering efforts. Our process to address non-responders contained specific escalation procedures including bi-weekly business unit meetings with corporate management until an appropriate supplier response was received. Additionally, new for the 2016 production year, AMETEK employed outside consultants to assist with gathering CFM Templates and confirmation of the validity of their Smelter lists. After considerable effort, we have received CFM responses from all (787) of our Tier 2 suppliers. For 2016, the key metrics from our Tier 2 group of suppliers are as follows:


2016 Tier 2 CFM Status by Spend
CONFLICT FREE      20%  
EXEMPT      65%  
UNKNOWN        0%  

Conclusions and Expected Next Steps

To the extent reasonably possible, AMETEK has documented the country of origin of identified smelters and refiners based on information received through the Conflict-Free Smelter Program (“CFSP”), surveys of smelters and refiners, and/or reviews of publicly available information. We have identified a total of 307 smelters as potential sources of 3TG minerals furnished to AMETEK Suppliers during 2016 (see Appendix I). AMETEK, Inc. intends to continue to evaluate and improve our due diligence program and engage with our suppliers to identify the origin and chain of custody of 3TG minerals in our products with an aim to achieve a Conflict Free Supply Base.
