B. Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry China Mobile has conducted an inquiry that was designed to determine whether any of the 3TG in Products originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (the DRC) or an adjoining country as defined in the instructions to Form SD (collectively together with the DRC, the Covered Countries) or is from recycled or scrap sources. If, based on such inquiry, China Mobile knows or has reason to believe that any of the necessary conflict minerals contained in Products originated or may have originated in a Covered Country, and knows or has reason to believe that those necessary conflict minerals may not be solely from recycled or scrap sources, China Mobile will conduct due diligence to determine if the necessary conflict minerals contained in those Products did or did not directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Covered Countries. Products which do not contain necessary conflict minerals that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Covered Countries are considered DRC conflict free by China Mobile after conducting its due diligence. As China Mobile is a downstream supplier of finished products and does not purchase from, and has no established commercial relationships with, smelters or refiners of conflict minerals, China Mobiles reasonable country of origin inquiry (RCOI) focused on its direct suppliers. China Mobile was able to identify all of its direct suppliers of Products containing 3TG that have been contracted by China Mobile to be manufactured by third parties. There were 16 such direct suppliers during the Reporting Period.
