Section 1 - Conflict Minerals Disclosure
Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report
Harvard Bioscience, Inc. (“Harvard Bioscience”) has evaluated its current product lines and has determined in good faith that during 2018 it manufactured or contracted to manufacture products as to which columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite, gold, wolframite and their derivatives, which are limited to tantalum, tin, and tungsten (herein referred to as “Conflict Minerals”) are necessary to the functionality or production of such products (herein referred to as “Covered Products”). Based on such determination, Harvard Bioscience conducted a reasonable country of origin inquiry, or RCOI, that was reasonably designed to determine whether any of the Conflict Minerals in the Covered Products originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country (the Republic of the Congo, the Central African Republic, South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, Zambia or Angola); or were from recycled or scrap sources.
Following the RCOI, Harvard Bioscience exercised due diligence on the source and chain of custody of its applicable products. Information on the RCOI, steps we have taken to exercise due diligence on the source and chain of custody of any Conflict Minerals in the Covered Products and the results of this due diligence, are disclosed in the Conflict Minerals Report filed as Exhibit 1.01 to this Form SD.

Conflict Minerals Report
For The Year Ended December 31, 2018
This report for the year ended December 31, 2018 is presented to comply with Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (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 (the “Dodd-Frank Act”). The Rule imposes certain reporting obligations on SEC registrants whose manufactured 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 (“Conflict Minerals”) for the purposes of this report. These requirements apply to registrants whatever the geographic origin of the conflict minerals and whether or not they fund armed conflict.
As described in this report, Harvard Bioscience, Inc., a Delaware corporation (herein referred to as “Harvard Bioscience,” the “Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) has reason to believe that some of the Conflict Minerals present in its supply chain may have originated in the Covered Countries. For purposes of this report, Covered Countries refers to the Democratic Republic of the Congo (the “DRC”) and adjoining countries, defined as any country that shares an internationally recognized border with the Democratic Republic of the Congo. We are unable with absolute assurance to determine the origin of the Conflict Minerals in our products and therefore cannot exclude the possibility that some may have originated in the Covered Countries.
1. Company Overview
This report has been prepared by management of Harvard Bioscience. The information includes the activities of all majority-owned subsidiaries as of December 31, 2018.
Harvard Bioscience, Inc., a Delaware corporation, is a global developer, manufacturer and marketer of a broad range of scientific instruments and systems used to advance life science for basic research, drug discovery, clinical and environmental testing. Our products are sold to thousands of researchers in over 100 countries through our global sales organization, websites, catalogs, and through distributors including Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., VWR and other specialized distributors. We have sales and manufacturing operations in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Spain, France, Canada, and China.
Conflict Minerals Policy
We adopted a conflict minerals policy in 2013 which is publicly available at http://investor.harvardbioscience.com/corporate-governance.cfm.
2. Product Description
As of December 31, 2018, our broad core product range was organized into three commercial product families: Physiology, Cell, Molecular Instruments (PCMI), Electrophysiology (Ephys), and Data Sciences International (DSI). As of December 31, 2018, we primarily sold our products under brand names, including Harvard Apparatus, KD Scientific, Hoefer, Biochrom, BTX, Warner Instruments, MCS, HEKA, Hugo Sachs Elektronik, Panlab, Coulbourn Instruments, TBSI, DSI, and CMA Microdialysis Our products consist of instruments, consumables, and systems made up of several individual products. We manufacture our products at our locations in the United States, Germany, Sweden and Spain. Our broad and complex product range may contain conflict minerals within the following components:
|•||Tantalum, used in capacitors,|
|•||Tin, used in soldered components,|
|•||Tungsten, used in coatings, alloys, heating elements and electrodes,|
|•||Gold, used in circuit boards, electrodes and electronic components.|
3. Description of Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry, or RCOI
We began our RCOI by completing a supplier list extraction from our Vendor List. This list was then filtered to remove:
|•||Indirect Materials Suppliers|
|•||Inactive Suppliers (minimum 2 years since last purchase)|
This ensures that all suppliers surveyed provided items to Harvard Bioscience that were used in final products in the year 2018. Once the filtering was completed, we populated the list with contact information and this list was then provided to Assent Compliance (“Assent”), our third party service provider, for upload to their Assent Compliance Manager SaaS system (“ACM”). It was deemed appropriate to not further filter this list based on the necessity of the presence of Conflict Minerals in the products as we could not definitively determine the presence or absence of Conflict Minerals in all parts supplied. The survey employed the Responsible Minerals Initiative’s (RMI’s Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (the “CMRT”), version 5.11, originally developed by the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) and The Global e-Sustainability Initiative. The CMRT allows for further scoping as they ask suppliers whether any of the Conflict Minerals are intentionally added and if they are necessary to the functionality or production of their products. Assent conducted additional analysis of the supply chain and such analysis combined with supplier feedback, allowed Assent and Harvard Bioscience to remove additional suppliers from scope of the conflict minerals regulation. The factors considered in Assent’s secondary analysis and the information provided that removed these suppliers from scope included:
|•||The product they supply is packaging. (Labels do not count as packaging)|
|•||Parts that do not end up in the final product. (This includes equipment used to make the product but is not a part of the actual product itself (i.e. Industrial equipment, computers etc.).)|
|•||Test Labs (i.e. Providers that test the resistance or durability of a product)|
|•||Service Providers (i.e. any supplier that provides a service but not an actual physical part).|
|•||Any supplier who has not supplied anything to Harvard Bioscience, Inc., in the last 2 years.|
Assent then conducted the supplier survey portion of the RCOI.
During the supplier survey, suppliers were contacted via the ACM, a SaaS platform that enables its users to complete and track supplier communications as well as allow suppliers to upload completed CMRTs directly to the platform for assessment and management.
Non-responsive suppliers were contacted a minimum of three times by ACM and then were also managed by the Assent Compliance team in one on one communications. This includes two to three direct follow ups from that team.
Assent’s communications with suppliers included training and education on the completion of the CMRT to alleviate any remaining confusion with suppliers. All of these communications were monitored and tracked in Assent's system for future reporting and transparency.
The program continues to include automated data validation on all submitted CMRTs. The goal of data validation is to increase the accuracy of submissions and identify any contradictory answers in the CMRT.
This data validation is based on:
|•||Questions 1 and 2 are minimum requirements for the CMRT|
|o||If suppliers state (via Q1 and Q2) that their products do not contain 3TGs necessary to the function or production of said products, then no further information is required and no further data validation is completed.|
|•||Question 3 – Do any of your 3TGs originate from the covered countries?|
|o||Any supplier that has any 3TGs from the covered countries, even 1 positive response from their supply chain must answer yes.|
|•||Question 4– is 100% of the 3TG in question from a recycled source?|
|•||Question 5 – Have you received info from all relevant 3TG Suppliers?|
|o||If you are not at 100%, then you can’t make definitive statements for Questions 3, 4 and 6|
|•||Question 6 – Have you identified all your Smelters and refiners?|
|o||If the answer here is yes, then question 5 must be yes. This also impacts question 3.|
All submitted forms are accepted and classified as valid or invalid so that data is still retained. Suppliers are contacted in regards to invalid forms and are encouraged to resubmit a valid form. Suppliers are also provided with guidance on how to correct these validation errors. As of May 17, 2019, there were 34 invalid supplier submissions that could not be corrected.
Assent compared the list of smelters and refiners provided in our suppliers’ responses to the lists of smelters maintained by the RMI and, if a supplier indicated that a facility was certified as conflict-free, confirmed that the facility was listed on RMI’s list of validated conflict free smelters and refiners of 3TGs. Our suppliers identified a total of 325 smelters and refiners that appear on the lists maintained by RMI. Of these 325 smelters and refiners, 255 are validated as conflict free by RMI or a cross-recognized initiative, and, based on information provided by RMI, a further 8 have agreed to undergo or are currently undergoing a third-party audit. Most of the CMRTs we received were made on a company or division level basis which did not allow us to identify which smelters or refiners listed by our suppliers actually processed the 3TGs contained in our products. Based on the RCOI, we had reason to believe that some of the 3TGs may have originated from the Covered Countries, therefore, in accordance with the Rule, performed due diligence on the source and chain of custody of the conflict minerals in question.
4. Due Diligence Process
4.1 Design of Due Diligence
Our due diligence measures have been designed to conform, in all material respects, with the framework in The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (“OECD”) Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas (the “OECD Guidance”) and the related Supplements for Conflict Minerals.
The Guidance identifies five steps for due diligence that should be implemented and provides guidance as to how to achieve each step. We developed our due diligence process to address each of these five steps, namely:
We are a downstream supplier, many steps removed from the mining of 3TG. A large number of suppliers, through multiple tiers of distribution, supply the components and materials integrated into our products. Furthermore, we do not purchase raw ore or unrefined conflict minerals or make purchases from the Covered Countries. The origin of the conflict minerals cannot be determined with any certainty once the raw ores are smelted, refined and converted to ingots, bullion or other conflict mineral containing derivatives. The smelters and refiners consolidate raw ore and represent the best actors in the total supply chain to possess knowledge of the origin of the ores they procure.
The OECD Guidance specifies that the requirements for compliance should reflect a company’s position in the supply chain. In particular, the OECD Guidance states that the implementation of due diligence should be tailored to a company’s activities and relationships and that the nature and extent of due diligence may vary based on a company’s size, products, relationships with suppliers and other factors. Due to practical difficulties associated with supply chain complexities, the OECD Guidance advises that downstream companies exercise due diligence primarily by establishing controls over their immediate suppliers. Accordingly, we rely primarily on our “tier 1” (direct) suppliers to provide information with respect to the origin of the conflict minerals contained in the components and materials supplied to us.
4.2 Management Systems
Harvard Bioscience has established a management system for conflict minerals. Our management system includes a committee selected by the Chief Financial Officer of the Company as well as executive-level representatives and a team of subject matter experts from relevant functions such as:
The team of subject matter experts is responsible for implementing our conflict minerals compliance strategy. Senior management is briefed about the results of our due diligence efforts on a regular basis.
As we do not typically have a direct relationship with Conflict Minerals smelters and refiners, we are engaged and actively cooperate with other major manufacturers in our sector and other sectors. Controls include, but are not limited to, the use of the CMRT as the data collection format for our suppliers, our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics which outlines certain expected behaviors for all Harvard Bioscience employees. In addition, we rely on our direct suppliers to provide information on the origin of the Conflict Minerals contained in components and materials supplied to us – including sources of Conflict Minerals that are supplied to them from lower tier suppliers.
With respect to the OECD requirement to strengthen engagement with suppliers, we have, through Assent, provided education on the Conflict Minerals regulation as well as the expectations of the law and for a continued business relationship. This year, we put a stronger emphasis on supplier education and training. To accomplish this, we utilized Assent’s learning management system, Assent University, and provided all in-scope suppliers access to their Conflict Minerals training course. This training is tracked and evaluated based on completion. All suppliers are encouraged to complete all modules within this course.
Various communication channels exist to serve as grievance mechanisms for early-warning risk awareness. We have multiple longstanding grievance mechanisms whereby employees (internal) and suppliers (external) can report violations of our policies. This includes, but is not limited to our whistleblower hotline that is part of our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics policy located on our website at http://investor.harvardbioscience.com/corporate-governance.cfm.
Our existing policy related to relevant documentation of our conflict mineral compliance process requires that documentation will be retained for a period of at least five years. We store all of the information and findings from this process in a database that can be audited by internal or external parties.
4.3 Identify and assess risk in the supply chain
Because of the complexity of our products, and the depth, breadth, and constant evolution of our supply chain, it is difficult to identify actors upstream from our direct suppliers. Risks are identified automatically in ACM based on criteria established for supplier responses in the Conflict Policy document and Management System.
All of the information and findings from this process are stored in a database that can be audited by internal or external parties.
Certain of the responses to the surveys included the names of facilities listed by the suppliers as smelters or refiners. We compared, via Assent, each facility listed in the responses to the lists of smelters and refiners maintained by the RMI to verify the existence of the facility and to determine whether the facility has met the requirements of the RMI’s Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP) and is considered Compliant to that protocol.
Each facility that meets the RMI definition of a smelter or refiner of a 3TG mineral is assigned a risk of high, medium or low based on the following 3 scoring criteria:
Based on this criteria, certain facilities have been identified as being of highest concern to the supply chain. When these facilities were reported on a CMRT by one of the suppliers surveyed, risk mitigation activities were initiated. Through Assent, submissions that include any of the above facilities immediately produce a receipt instructing the supplier to take their own risk mitigation actions, including submission of a product specific CMRT to better identify the connection to products that they supply to Harvard Bioscience, and escalating up to removal of these high risk smelters from their supply chain.
As per the OECD Due Diligence Guidance, risk mitigation will depend on the supplier’s specific context. Suppliers are given clear performance objectives within reasonable timeframes with the ultimate goal of progressive elimination of these risks from the supply chain.
In addition, suppliers are guided to the Assent University learning platform to engage in educational materials on mitigating the risk of smelters or refiners on the supply chain.
If any smelter or refiner is not recognized by the RMI, Assent conducts outreach and research to gain more information about whether they are a smelter or a refiner, sourcing practices, location, and country of origin. Additionally, if any smelter is not certified conflict-free, Assent conducts outreach providing education on the RMAP and encouraging them to join this program.
Additionally, suppliers are evaluated on program strength (further assisting in identifying risk in the supply chain). Many companies continue to be in the middle of the process and still have “unknown” as some of the answers. It has been decided that penalizing or failing them for working through the process is likely not the best approach for the initial years of compliance, it does not meet the goals or spirit of the Rule, however evaluating and tracking the strength of the program does meet the OECD Due Diligence Guidelines and can assist in making key risk mitigation decisions as the program progresses. The criteria used to evaluate the strength of the program are:
A. Have you established a conflict minerals sourcing policy?
E. Have you implemented due diligence measures for conflict-free sourcing?
G. Do you review due diligence information received from your suppliers against your company’s expectations?
H. Does your review process include corrective action management?
When suppliers meet or exceed those criteria (“Yes” to at least A, E, G, H) , they are deemed to have a strong program. When suppliers do not meet those criteria, they are deemed to have a weak program.
We believe that the inquiries and investigations described above represent a reasonable effort to determine the mines or locations of origin of the Conflict Minerals in our Covered Products, including (1) seeking information about Conflict Minerals smelters and refiners in our supply chain through requesting that our suppliers complete the CMRT, (2) verifying those smelters and refiners with the expanding RMI lists, (3) conducting the due diligence review, and (4) obtaining additional documentation and verification, as applicable.
4.4 Design and Implement a Strategy to Respond to Risks
In response to this risk assessment, Harvard Bioscience has an approved risk management plan, through which the conflict minerals program is implemented, managed and monitored.
As part of our risk management plan, to ensure suppliers understand our expectations we have provided both video, recorded training and documented instructions through Assent. As the program progresses, contacts via email and phone by Harvard Bioscience procurement team members will be completed as an escalation to ensure the importance of a response via CMRTs to Assent and the required cooperation for compliance to the Conflict Minerals rules will be emphasized.
As described in our conflict minerals policy, we engage any of our suppliers whom we have reason to believe are supplying us with Conflict Minerals from sources that may support conflict in the Covered Countries to establish an alternative source of Conflict Minerals that does not support such conflict, as provided in the OECD guidance. We have found no instances where it was necessary to terminate a contract or find a replacement supplier.
4.5 Carry out Independent Third Party Audit of Supply Chain Due Diligence at Identified Points in the Supply Chain
We do not typically have a direct relationship with smelters and refiners and therefore do not perform or direct audits of these entities. However, we will rely on publicly available third party assurances and certifications, for example, through the RMI’s Responsible Minerals Assurance Process “RMAP”.
4.6 Report annually on supply chain due diligence
We report annually on our supply chain due diligence by filing a Form SD and a Conflict Minerals Report with the SEC. Our Form SD and Conflict Minerals Report can be found on the Corporate Governance page of our website: http://investor.harvardbioscience.com/corporate-governance.cfm.
5. Due Diligence Results
We are actively surveying our supplier chain. This year we surveyed 1,331 suppliers. Of those suppliers we received CMRTs from 630 suppliers. We review the responses against criteria developed to determine whether further engagement with our suppliers is required. These criteria included untimely or incomplete responses as well as inconsistencies within the data reported in the template. We, through the assistance of Assent, have worked with these suppliers to provide revised responses. All final CMRT submissions were reviewed and validated to ensure no inaccuracies or gaps in data were found. At the end of our campaigning, 34 suppliers were unable to correct their CMRT and as such, are still listed as invalid submissions.
Smelters or Refiners
The information that we received from a majority of our Applicable Suppliers was at their company-wide level. Thus, the smelters or refiners identified by our Applicable Suppliers contained in the tables below may contain smelters or refiners that processed conflict minerals that our Applicable Suppliers supplied to their other customers, but not to us. As a result, we are unable to conclusively determine whether the smelters or refiners included in the tables below were used to process the conflict minerals necessary to the functionality or production of our products during 2018. Because of this uncertainty, we are also unable to conclusively determine whether each of the countries of origin listed above were the country of origin of conflict minerals in our products during 2018, and therefore also unable to conclusively determine the source and chain of custody of those conflict minerals. In addition, the information that we receive from our Applicable Suppliers may yield inaccurate or incomplete information because they may not have received accurate and complete conflict minerals information from all of the suppliers in their own supply chain. As we are not a member of the RMI, we also do not have access to audit reports or detailed findings of the third-party audits conducted as part of the RMI’s RMAP or the LBMA Responsible Gold Programme and, as a result, are not responsible for the quality of these audits or the audit findings.
Our third-party service provider compared the facilities listed in the responses in the CMRT to the list of smelters maintained by the RMI, and confirmed that the name was listed by RMI as a legitimate smelter. As of May 17, 2019, we have validated in this manner that 325 smelters or refiners provided in our supplier CMRTs are included on these lists. The facilities determined to be legitimate smelters or refiners based on this comparison to the RMI-maintained list have also been compared to the RMI’s RMAP list. Based on this comparison, we are aware of 255 compliant smelters or refiners, 8 smelters or refiners that have begun the process and are deemed as active in the RMAP but have not yet been validated as Conflict-Free and 55 smelters or refiners that are not enrolled in the process to become compliant to the RMAP. Confirmed smelter or refiner sourcing is not generally available through public information sources related to the smelter or refiner however Attachment A does include an aggregate country list of known smelter or refiner sourcing countries. Despite the additional smelter information obtained from these suppliers, in most cases information has been provided on a company or division level, rather than on a component level. Therefore, we cannot yet ascertain whether the smelters identified by our suppliers are related to any parts or components actually provided to us by the suppliers. Attachment A lists the smelters and refiners that the suppliers we surveyed reported as being in their supply chains. We have not included in Attachment A any smelters or refiners that we have not been able to validate. Attachment A also includes the facility RMI audit status.
Efforts to determine mine or location of origin
As noted above, the current efforts focus on gathering smelter information via the CMRT reporting template and, as the program progresses, requiring full completion of all necessary smelter identification information which will enable the validation and disclosure of the smelters as well as the tracing of the Conflict Minerals to their location of origin. Seeking information about Conflict Minerals smelters and refiners in our supply chain represents the most reasonable effort we can make to determine the mines or locations of origin of the Conflict Minerals in our supply chain.
6. Steps to improve future due diligence and to mitigate risk
We intend to take the following steps to improve the due diligence conducted to further mitigate any risk that the necessary Conflict Minerals in our products could benefit armed groups in the DRC or adjoining countries:
|•||Engage with suppliers and direct them to training resources to attempt to increase the response rate and improve the content of the supplier survey responses.|
|•||Suppliers will also be requested to inform Harvard Bioscience of the correlation between these smelters and the products and parts they supply to Harvard Bioscience.|
|•||Engage any of our suppliers found to be supplying us with Conflict Minerals from sources that support conflict in the DRC or any adjoining country to establish an alternative source of Conflict Minerals that does not support such conflict.|
