Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report

The Company is concerned about the social and environmental conditions that have been observed in some mines that supply metals to the electronics industry known as “conflict minerals” which currently consist of the following metals: columbite-tantalite, also known as coltan (the metal ore from which tantalum is extracted); cassiterite (the metal ore from which tin is extracted); gold; wolframite (the metal ore from which tungsten is extracted); or their derivatives. The longstanding civil war in the eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of Congo (“DRC”) has impacted many mines that supply conflict minerals. Together with our peers, we are working to support the development and implementation of a tracking and validation system to ensure conflict minerals that originate in the DRC come from responsible sources free from association with armed conflict. For more information on our program and to view our Supplier Code of Conduct you can visit our web site at The information contained on Motorola Solutions’ website is not a part of this Form SD and is not deemed incorporated by reference into this Form SD or any other public filing made with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

In accordance with the requirements of our Supplier Code of Conduct, Motorola Solutions has concluded that during 2013:


  a) Motorola Solutions manufactured and contracted to manufacture products as to which conflict minerals are necessary to the functionality or production of such products; and


  b) Based on a “reasonable country of origin inquiry” Motorola Solutions knows or has reason to believe that a portion of its necessary conflict minerals originated or may have originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country (collectively, sometimes referred to as the “Covered Countries”).

Motorola Solutions’ reasonable country of origin inquiry (“RCOI”) employed a combination of measures to determine whether the necessary conflict minerals in Motorola Solutions products originated from the Covered Countries. Motorola Solutions’ primary means of determining country of origin of necessary conflict minerals was by conducting a supply chain survey with direct suppliers using the Conflict Free Sourcing Initiative’s Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”). Motorola Solutions used the smelter information from the CMRT and the various smelters’ country of origin information provided through our membership to the Conflict Free Sourcing Initiative to determine the country of origin of material that may be in our products. Additionally, Motorola Solutions’ participation with in-region sourcing programs such as Solutions for Hope ( and Conflict Free Tin Initiative ( provided additional country of origin information.

As a result of the RCOI conducted as described above, Motorola Solutions concluded that material in our products may have originated from all three of the country levels as described below:

Level 1 Country: Countries with known active ore production for tin or tantalum that are not identified as conflict regions or plausible countries of smuggling or export of tin or tantalum containing materials.

Level 2 Country: Known or plausible countries for smuggling, export out of level 3 countries, or transit of materials containing tin or tantalum. This currently includes Kenya, Mozambique, and South Africa.

Level 3 Country: The Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) and its nine adjoining countries as outlined in Section 1502 of the Dodd Frank Act. These include Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic, DRC, Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia. These are also commonly referred to as “covered countries” in the Dodd Frank Act Section 1502.
