Section 1 – Conflict Minerals Disclosure

Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report

Conflict Minerals Disclosure

Woodward, Inc. (the “Company,” “Woodward,” “we,” “us” or “our”) is filing this Form SD pursuant to Rule 13p-1 (“Rule 13p-1”) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 for the reporting period from January 1, 2023 to December 31, 2023 (the “Reporting Period”).

Rule 13p-1, through Form SD, requires the disclosure of certain information if a company manufactures or contracts to manufacture products for which certain conflict minerals (as defined below) are necessary to the functionality or production of such products. As defined in Form SD and as used herein, “conflict minerals” means: (i)(a) columbite-tantalite (or coltan), (b) cassiterite, (c) gold and (d) wolframite, or their derivatives, which are currently limited to tantalum, tin and tungsten; or (ii) any other mineral or its derivatives determined by the U.S. Secretary of State to be financing conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an “adjoining country” as defined in Form SD (collectively, the “Covered Countries”). Our operations, including the operations of our consolidated subsidiaries, manufacture, or contract to manufacture, products for which conflict minerals are necessary to the functionality or production of those products. Woodward primarily serves the aerospace and industrial market segments. Products we manufacture or contract to manufacture in the aerospace market segment include fuel pumps, metering units, actuators, air valves, specialty valves, fuel nozzles, and thrust reverser actuation systems for turbine engines and nacelles; as well as flight deck controls (auto throttles, rudder pedal assembles, flight control assemblies), actuators, servocontrols, motors and sensors for aircraft. Products we manufacture or contract to manufacture in the industrial market segment include power converters, actuators, valves, pumps, injectors, solenoids, ignition systems, governors, electronics and devices that measure, communicate and protect low and medium voltage electrical distribution systems. Woodward has determined that some of these products contain one or more conflict minerals, in particular:

All of the product families listed, except for valves, nozzles, injectors and some pumps, contain (or physically are) electronics, motors and/or sensors. These product families will contain, at a minimum, tin in the lead/tin solder that fastens electronic components to printed circuit boards and tantalum in certain families of capacitors used in printed circuit board assemblies within those product families.
Gold is used in the plating of connectors and contacts in many of the electronics within our product families.
Finally, items in all of Woodward product families use a variety of steels, which could contain very small amounts of tungsten as part of their material recipe.

As a result of these determinations, Woodward is required to conduct a reasonable country of origin inquiry (“RCOI”) in accordance with Rule 13p-1.

Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry

As noted above, some of the products Woodward manufactures contain one or more conflict minerals. Woodward does not purchase conflict minerals directly from mines, smelters or refiners. Rather, the

 


 

Company sources products containing conflict minerals from its suppliers. In accordance with the OECD Guidelines (as defined below), the Company relies on its suppliers to provide information regarding the origin of conflict minerals included in supplied products, including, where possible, the smelters or refiners (“SOR”) of the conflict minerals. There is significant overlap between our RCOI efforts and the due diligence measures we perform. Our due diligence measures are described in our Conflict Minerals Report, attached hereto as Exhibit 1.01.

General

Our RCOI process conforms to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (“OECD”) framework, “OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas”, Third Edition (2016) (the “OECD Guidelines”). We have contracted with Assent Compliance, Inc., a provider of compliance solutions, (“Assent”) to license the Assent Sustainability Manager (“ASM”) and we utilize Assent’s support services to automate the supplier inquiry, data collection and data validation tasks essential for RCOI. We are members of the Responsible Materials Initiative (“RMI”), and we leverage RMI’s extensive database of SORs, SOR audit records, and country of origin data. We participate in a multi-company written request, facilitated by Assent, to each SOR that was not participating in, or had not completed, an independent audit program. This request is made to determine compliance to conflict-free sourcing protocols, and to encourage such SORs to participate in the audit program at the earliest practical opportunity.

Supplier Categorization

In connection with the preparation of the Form SD and associated Conflict Minerals Report, we create a master supplier list of direct suppliers who provide items or services directly used in items that Woodward manufactures or contracts to manufacture. Such suppliers are classified as either direct non-distribution suppliers, who fabricate custom designed items to either Woodward specification or supplier-engineered specifications, or direct distribution suppliers, who source items from multiple original equipment manufacturers (“OEMs”), typically in the nature of a commercial item or items manufactured to standard government specifications. Direct distribution suppliers do not manufacture or contract to manufacture, nor do they influence the functionality or content of the items they obtain from OEMs and provide to their customers. Woodward relies on the efforts and activities of professional societies, including RMI and its Responsible Minerals Assurance Process, to establish and maintain the principal mechanisms for obtaining OEM distribution component conflict minerals status from our first tier distribution suppliers. Woodward also utilizes Assent to contact OEMs directly for compliance status when Woodward is able to provide the OEM’s name and part number.

In-Scope Supplier Identification

To identify the in-scope Woodward suppliers, we generated reports within our enterprise resource planning (“ERP”) systems to identify the products that were shipped during 2023, using actual shipments from January through September, and forecasted shipments from October through December. We review this list and exclude (i) suppliers for which we know the parts they supply to us do not contain any 3TG, and (ii) suppliers that contribute items or services only for Woodward’s internal operations and infrastructure, and that are not incorporated into items that Woodward manufactures or contracts to manufacture. The remaining suppliers are in-scope and are included in our conflict minerals campaign.

 


 

Woodward Conflict Minerals Campaign

See “Woodward Calendar Year 2023 Due Diligence Results” in our Conflict Minerals Report for a description of our 2023 conflict minerals campaign, a summary of supplier responses, and the results of our supplier and country of origin due diligence.

Supplier Response Assessment

Assent provided Woodward an extensive and comprehensive supplier Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”) assessment and validation of supplier responses using a due diligence process conforming to the 5-step due diligence process specified in the OECD Guidelines. We discuss this diligence process further in our Conflict Minerals Report. Assent validated the SOR input provided in supplier CMRTs using an extensive database consisting of the RMI, Responsible Jewelry Council, and London Bullion Market Association validated SOR lists and the results of Assent’s internal independent SOR validation efforts. The CMRTs that passed the assessment process were automatically combined by ASM into a Woodward company level CMRT. Those CMRTs that did not pass were returned to the supplier with discrepancies identified and a corrective action request. Woodward, using its RMI membership and access to the RMI SOR audit records and country of origin data, completed its RCOI down to the mine country of origin level to the degree of accuracy and discrimination available in the RMI database. See “Smelter or Refiner Mine Country of Origin Results” in our Conflict Minerals Report for a summary of our country of origin findings.

RCOI Results

Based on our reasonable country of origin inquiry, Woodward has found that some of our in-scope suppliers use smelters whose conflict minerals were acquired from mines in the Covered Countries. As a result of our due diligence process and findings to date, the Company has determined to file a Conflicts Minerals Report, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 1.01 to this Form SD. Our Conflict Minerals Report is also publicly available as a document link at: https://www.woodward.com/en/about/corporate-governance/compliance.

Exhibit 1.01

Conflict Minerals Report of Woodward, Inc.

For the reporting period from January 1, 2023 to December 31, 2023

This Conflict Minerals Report (the “Report”) of Woodward, Inc. (the “Company,” “Woodward,” “we,” “us” or “our”) has been prepared pursuant to Rule 13p-1 (“Rule 13p-1”) and Form SD (“Form SD”) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) for the reporting period January 1, 2023 to December 31, 2023 (the “Reporting Period”).

Rule 13p-1, through Form SD, requires the disclosure of certain information if a company manufactures or contracts to manufacture products for which certain conflict minerals (as defined below) are necessary to the functionality or production of such products. As defined in Form SD, and as used herein, “conflict minerals” means: (i)(a) columbite-tantalite (or coltan), (b) cassiterite, (c) gold and (d) wolframite, or their derivatives, which are currently limited to tantalum, tin and tungsten; or (ii) any other mineral or its derivatives determined by the U.S. Secretary of State to be financing conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an “adjoining country” as defined in Form SD (collectively, the “Covered Countries”).

Woodward’s Manufactured and Contracted-to-Manufacture Products

Woodward, including our consolidated subsidiaries, manufactures and sub-contracts for the manufacture of products for which conflict minerals are necessary to the functionality or production of those products. We provide energy control and optimization solutions for the aerospace and industrial market segments through the precise and efficient control of fluid and electrical energy, combustion, and motion. Please see (i) our Form SD for a detailed description of our products, including those products that we believe are likely to contain one or more conflict minerals, and (ii) Item 1 in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2023 for a more detailed description of our business, markets, services and product applications.

The Company’s Due Diligence Process

The Company’s due diligence measures have been designed to conform to the framework in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (“OECD”), “OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chain of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High Risk Areas,” Third Edition (2016), including applicable supplements thereto (the “OECD Guidelines”).

Woodward has implemented or is addressing each of the steps in the OECD 5-step due diligence framework as discussed or referenced below:

1.
Establish strong company management systems
a.
Company conflict minerals policy

Woodward has adopted a written conflict minerals policy (the “Conflict Minerals Policy”). The Conflict Minerals Policy affirms the Company’s commitment to responsible sourcing of minerals from conflict affected and high-risk areas. The policy is publicly available and can be accessed at https://www.woodward.com/en/about/corporate-governance/compliance. The policy is reviewed annually to determine if any revisions are appropriate.

 


 

b.
Internal management structure

Pursuant to the Conflict Minerals Policy, the Senior Vice President, Global Sourcing is responsible for ensuring our compliance with conflict minerals reporting requirements. Senior Global Sourcing leadership oversees the day-to-day conflict minerals program activities, and they provide regular updates on the conflict minerals program to the Senior Vice President, Global Sourcing. Woodward’s Director of Governance and Securities serves as an advisor on conflict minerals compliance. When appropriate, conflict minerals and our conflict minerals program are a topic of discussion and review by our Board of Directors, or an appropriate committee thereof. Global Sourcing is responsible for reaching out to the Company’s in-scope suppliers on an ongoing basis to collect information, including, once per year, a Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”), regarding the presence and sourcing of conflict minerals in the products supplied to the Company. Other functions within Woodward provide focused support as required. These actions have aligned existing strategic and organizational structures to address the due diligence and reporting requirements of Rule 13p-1.

c.
System of controls and transparency over the mineral supply chain

Our enterprise resource planning (“ERP”) systems provide controls over our supply chain. The ERP systems currently provide:

Identification of the end item products we provide to each of our customers;
Shipping transaction history to assist in bounding our sales/shipments by calendar year as required by Rule 13p-1;
A bill of material identifying all of the components and materials in each of our end item products;
A purchasing history of each of our purchased components and raw materials and the identification of the suppliers used for these purchases;
A receiving inspection function that accepts or rejects purchased components and raw materials based upon whether the purchased items meet or do not meet the specification requirements (including specified material requirements) of the associated drawing or other specification documents. This is accomplished by a combination of direct measurements / inspections of the actual parts, or by reviewing the existence and completeness of formal supplier certifications to selected specifications, such as certifying proper use of specified aluminum or steel specifications.

We have contracted with Assent Compliance, Inc., a provider of compliance solutions, (“Assent”) to license the Assent Sustainability Manager (“ASM”) and we utilize Assent’s support services to automate the supplier inquiry, data collection and data validation tasks essential for RCOI. In addition, Woodward maintains full membership with the Responsible Materials Initiative (“RMI”).

d.
Strengthen Company engagement with suppliers

Woodward is committed to conducting business in a socially responsible manner and is determined to partner with suppliers who are similarly committed. We continue to engage with our suppliers regarding conflict minerals requirements. Our purchase order terms and conditions and our standard long-term

 


 

supplier agreement (collectively, our “supplier terms”) require our suppliers to support our conflict minerals reporting. Woodward reviews the conflict minerals provisions in our supplier terms on a regular basis. We desire to achieve improved supply chain transparency and responsible sourcing, with the ultimate goal of obtaining full material disclosure (substance, content-by-weight, raw material smelter sources) to increase the traceability of materials from each supplier.

By accepting a Woodward purchase order, a Woodward supplier:

“…warrants and certifies that it complies with Section 1502 of the Dodd Frank Act and the Final Rule issued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and any subsequent rules and regulations related thereto issued by the United States Government and, where identified by Woodward, other governments and/or authorities in regions that Woodward provides its products (“Conflict Minerals Regulations”), and has implemented compliant processes to ensure its suppliers are in compliance with the Conflict Minerals Regulations.

Where Seller does not have direct and formal reporting requirements under the Conflict Minerals Regulations, and upon request by Buyer, Seller agrees to provide due diligence and Responsible Country of Origin Inquiry (“RCOI”) information under this Agreement to Buyer in support of Buyer’s reporting requirements (the “RCOI Requirements”).

Further, Seller shall promptly comply with all requests by Buyer to provide documentation, and other substantiating data and assurances with respect to its compliance with Conflict Minerals Regulations and the RCOI Requirements as Buyer may deem necessary from time to time. In the event: (a) Buyer deems Seller is not in compliance with the Conflict Minerals Regulations or the RCOI Requirements, (b) Buyer is not satisfied with the outcome of any review of Seller documentation and/or data or otherwise, or (c) Seller does not provide the documentation, other data and/or other further assurances to Buyer as requested by Buyer, Buyer shall have the right to terminate this Order or any portion thereof without penalty or further liability to Buyer.”

Woodward conducts one-on-one contact sessions with suppliers to address their inquiries and provide guidance where needed. Through our contract with Assent, our suppliers have access to an extensive suite of training videos, slide decks, how-to manuals and regulation guidance documents. Our suppliers also have access to online chat with an Assent specialist if they have difficulties or questions while preparing their responses.

e.
Establish a company-level, or industry-wide, grievance mechanism as an early warning risk-awareness system

Woodward has a comprehensive Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (the “Code”) and employees receive regular training on a variety of ethics and compliance topics. Woodward also has robust reporting mechanisms for employees’ ethics concerns and grievances, including concerns regarding our supply chain and ethical sourcing. All Woodward employees have the right and responsibility to promptly report concerns, including but not limited to suspected or known violations of applicable law or regulation. Any person may choose to report any such concerns to their leader or any Company leader, Human Resources, Legal & Compliance, any member of Woodward’s Business Conduct Oversight Committee, any Company Officer, or any member of the Company’s Board of Directors. Additionally,

 


 

Woodward has established an Ethics Help Line, facilitated by a third party, that employees as well as any third party can contact to report concerns, anonymously or with attribution at the employee’s election. The reporting mechanisms are set forth in the Code which is available on our website, and the concepts are reinforced during employee trainings. Investigations of alleged violations are handled by a Company-level Business Conduct Oversight Committee and overseen by the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors.

Woodward suppliers are encouraged to contact their Woodward point of contact or the Ethics Help Line if they believe elements of Woodward direction may cause them to be noncompliant with Woodward’s stated social responsibility goals and compliance requirements. Woodward global sourcing members are also available to help our direct suppliers with compliance issues they may have with their suppliers regarding our flow down contract requirements. Suppliers’ conflict minerals representatives may also contact Woodward’s Product Material Compliance team, who will facilitate the appropriate guidance or resolution regarding such issues. Further, Woodward has adopted a Supplier Code of Conduct, which can be found at https://www.woodward.com/en/about/supplier-overview/supplier-code-of-conduct.

2.
Identify and assess risks in the supply chain

Woodward is a downstream manufacturer. As such, Woodward does not control the origin, source or composition of many of the materials provided by our suppliers. Consequently, we ask our suppliers to inquire, identify, and conduct data collection and due diligence activities, which in turn are fundamental elements of our due diligence activities. Woodward analyses the data collected from our in-scope suppliers for accuracy and completeness in order to identify and assess risks in the Woodward supply chain. This analysis includes:

the initial smelter checklist analysis contained in the CMRT;
Assent validation of smelter or refiner (“SOR”) lists in the supplier CMRTs, using an extensive database consisting of the RMI, Responsible Jewelry Council (“RJC”), and London Bullion Market Association (“LBMA”) validated SOR lists, and the results of Assent’s extensive internal and independent SOR validation efforts; and
the indirect analysis input that Woodward has acquired as a result of submitting interim roll-up CMRTs to our customers and receiving analysis results from the various software applications they use.

ASM generates for us the Woodward CMRT based on the valid supplier CMRTs we receive. We then compare the SOR list in the Woodward CMRT against the RMI SOR list and the RMI compliance and country of origin databases to ensure the accuracy of our data as of the conclusion of our conflict minerals campaign.

We use supplier CMRTs to identify the parent companies of our suppliers (if any), parent company contact data (if applicable), and whether the supplier reported conflict minerals data at the parent company level or at the affiliate level. The information we gather using this approach enables us to improve the targeting of future campaigns.

Data from our suppliers can be inaccurate or incomplete. For example, from time to time our suppliers report smelters in their supply chain (i) that do not match publicly available smelter data and therefore

 


 

cannot be confirmed as a smelter, or (ii) for which the conflict-free sourcing status has not validated. In such cases, ASM automatically provides a corrective action request to suppliers . Assent and Woodward jointly work with suppliers needing additional assistance to correct or eliminate these undetermined inputs as appropriate.

There is significant overlap between our RCOI efforts and our due diligence measures performed. Our RCOI process is described in our Form SD.

3.
Design and implement a strategy to respond to identified risks
a.
Report and implement a strategy to respond to identified risks

In 2023, Woodward continued to work closely with Assent to perform assessments of supplier-provided SOR data as described in the “Woodward Calendar Year 2023 Due Diligence Results” section of this Report. Both of our business segments also conduct periodic reviews of critical supply chain matters for the segment, including conflict minerals and product materials compliance. Additionally, each year, senior Global Sourcing leadership engages in a strategic planning review and a mid-year review with senior management of the Company to provide strategic oversight of our supply chain strategies and performance.

b.
Devise and adopt a risk management plan

Woodward has several established procedures and tools that form the foundation of the conflict minerals aspects of our risk management plan. These procedures and tools include but are not limited to our supplier approval process, our purchasing procedures, our purchase order and supplier agreement terms and conditions (described in Due Diligence section 1d above), our supplier registration portal and our parts transition process, as well as the evaluation of other existing and possible future software solutions. In addition, Assent and ASM enable us to perform a risk assessment of, and assign a risk rating to, each supplier CMRT we receive.

c.
Implement a risk mitigation plan

Together with more than 200 other companies, Woodward co-signs an annual letter coordinated by Assent. This letter is sent to every SOR that has not completed or that was not actively participating in an independent conflict-free sourcing practices audit. The purpose of the letter is to encourage participation in an independent third-party audit program and the use of conflict-free sourcing practices, and to leverage the collective influence we may have on the SORs. We also send letters directly from Woodward to our suppliers who do not adequately respond to our initial data requests.

4.
In 2023, Woodward continued to engage in additional fact finding and risk assessments to identify risks requiring mitigation or after a change in circumstances. Carry out independent third-party audits of supply chain due diligence at identified points in the supply chain

Woodward is significantly downstream in the supply chain from smelters and refiners. In order to obtain SOR information, Woodward seeks information from our upstream suppliers and from third party data aggregating services. Woodward is an RMI member and leverages the RMI Responsible Minerals Assurance Process and the resulting audit data from that program.

5.
Report annually on supply chain due diligence

 


 

The Form SD is posted within our SEC filings at https://ir.woodward.com/financials/sec-filings/default.aspx. This Report and Woodward’s Conflict Minerals Policy can be found at https://www.woodward.com/en/about/corporate-governance/compliance.

Woodward Calendar Year 2023 Due Diligence Results

Woodward Conflict Minerals Data Requests and Supplier Responses (the Due Diligence in Acquiring Supplier Data)

We initiated our 2023 campaign for in-scope Woodward suppliers in November 2023 by sending CMRT requests. All CMRT requests were sent at the part level. If suppliers were unable to provide part-level CMRTs, then we accepted company-level CMRTs. To eliminate ambiguity in our requests to suppliers, we provide each in-scope supplier a complete list of the specific parts that Woodward purchased from them that were incorporated into our calendar year shipments.

As part of the 2023campaign, two follow-up inquiries were sent to non-respondents and, where suppliers had still not responded, we followed up with three further “escalation” inquiries. As part of the escalation, Assent separated those suppliers who reported a “no 3TG” status for2022 into a separate simplified campaign, asking them if they could confirm their “no 3TG” status for 2023. Additionally, Woodward twice followed-up with suppliers that returned incomplete or invalid CMRTs with corrective action requests.

Summary results for our 2023 campaign, as of April 29, 2024 are as follows:

We campaigned 2,300 suppliers (compared to 1,774 suppliers in 2022)
We received CMRTs from 1,216 suppliers for a response rate of 53% (in 2022, we received CMRTs from 1,041 suppliers for a 59% response rate)
1005 suppliers, or 44% of the suppliers we campaigned, returned valid CMRTs (compared to 971, or 55%, in 2022)
175, or 14%, of our supplier CMRT responses were made at the Woodward-requested part level (compared to 139, or 14%, of CMRT responses last year)

We continue to make improvements in identifying suppliers who do not supply parts to us that contain 3TG, which has enabled us to engage in more direct campaigns with targeted suppliers. However, despite improved targeting, we saw a modest decrease in our supplier response rate.

Additionally, while our part level response rate remained flat year over year, we sent all CMRT requests at the part level for the first time in our 2023 campaign. We continue to engage with our in-scope suppliers to encourage and assist them in providing part-level data.

Supplier Response Assessment (Smelter Determination Due Diligence)

ASM generated an integrated roll-up CMRT from all valid supplier CMRTs received as of April 29, 2024. This resulted in 354 SORs with RMI identification numbers who provide, through our supply chain, conflict minerals used in Woodward’s products. See Exhibit A to this Report for a list of these 354 SORs. Woodward conducts no direct transactions and has no contractual relationship with these SORs or their sources of ore.

 


 

We used RMI’s SOR compliance status data and the results of our 2023 campaign, in each case as of April 29, 2024, to evaluate the 354 SORs with respect to RMI compliance. The summarized results are as follows:

225 SORs were determined by RMI to be “conformant”, meaning the SOR has been verified as having completed a responsible mineral sourcing validation program
9 SORs are designated by RMI as “active”, meaning the SOR has begun participating in a responsible mineral sourcing validation program
91 SORs had other RMI designations
29 SORs are designated by RMI as “non-conformant” (compared to 24 in the prior year)

We have identified 38 SORs in our supply chain that are categorized as “high risk” based on the sourcing practices and relationships of the applicable SOR. Woodward will conduct an outreach via Assent to our suppliers who utilize one or more of the 38 high risk SORS and to encourage these suppliers to (i) request that the applicable SORs participate in a responsible mineral sourcing validation program, and/or (ii) find alternative sourcing relationships with conformant SORs.

Certain suppliers reported potential sourcing from a gold smelter in the Uganda that has not been assessed by RMI (CID003185 – African Gold Refinery)(“AGR”). On March 17, 2022, the U.S. Department of the Treasury added African Gold Refinery in Uganda to the OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) List. Because of the over-reporting nature of the industry CMRT information collection process, and the nature of the supply chains and goods, we are unable to confirm if minerals from AGR are in our products. Woodward is in contact with suppliers who reported potential sourcing from AGR and will continue to engage with those suppliers to improve due diligence efforts and transparency.

Smelter or Refiner Mine Country of Origin Results

Mine country of origin data was available for all 225 of the conformant SORs. Of these 225 SORs, the mine country of origin data for 59 were provided on an aggregate basis to RMI by the LBMA. See Exhibit B to this Report for our country of origin findings as of April 29, 2023.

Concluding Statement

Woodward continues to refine our supplier conflict minerals risk analysis, relevant supplier identification, SOR identification, and mine country of origin through improvements in our due diligence activity, our use of the ASM and other Assent services, and our association memberships. However, because (i) Woodward has not yet achieved a 100% supplier response rate; (ii) a significant majority of our supplier responses are still at a company level and not yet focused on Woodward specific parts; and (iii) complete SOR conflict status and mine country of origin data is not yet available from centralized sources specializing in the collection and assessment of such data, Woodward does not have sufficiently complete or discriminating data at this time to confirm the conflict-free or may-not-be-conflict-free status of any of its product families or individual products. We have also found that many supplier respondents have supply chains using SORs that were not conformant to a responsible mineral sourcing validation program, and we will continue to actively address this issue to mitigate such usage through targeted supplier outreach enabled by our use of ASM and other Assent services. Woodward is continuing our efforts and progress on the improvement actions described above.
