Owens & Minor, Inc. Conflict Minerals Report
For the Year Ended December 31, 2020

I.    Introduction
This Conflict Minerals Report (“Report”) by Owens & Minor, Inc. is for the period from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020 (“Reporting Period”). Unless the context otherwise indicates, “Owens & Minor,” “Company,” “we,” “us,” and “our” mean Owens & Minor, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries.
This Report is intended to comply with Rule 13p-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Rule”). The Rule imposes certain reporting obligations on public companies that manufacture or contract to manufacture products containing conflict minerals that are necessary to the functionality or production of their products. Form SD defines “conflict minerals” as cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, gold, wolframite and their derivatives, which are currently limited to tin, tantalum and tungsten. We identified tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold (“3TGs”) that are necessary to the functionality or production of certain products that we manufactured or contracted to manufacture during the Reporting Period.
As described in this report, Owens & Minor has reason to believe that some of the 3TGs present in its supply chain may have originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) or an adjoining country (collectively, “Covered Countries”). Therefore, we performed a reasonable country of origin inquiry (“RCOI”) to determine whether any of the 3TGs in our products originated from the Covered Countries and were not from recycled or scrap sources. Based on the RCOI, we determined that we may have some suppliers that sourced 3TGs from the Covered Countries, and we proceeded to conduct due diligence on our supplier base. The results of our due diligence are discussed below.

II.    Company Overview

A.    Our Business
Owens & Minor, Inc. and subsidiaries, a Fortune 500 company headquartered in Richmond, Virginia, is a leading global healthcare solutions company with integrated technologies, products and services aligned to deliver significant and sustained value for healthcare providers, manufacturers and directly to patients across the continuum of care. Our teammates serve healthcare industry customers in over 70 countries, by providing quality products and helping to reduce total costs across the healthcare supply chain by optimizing point-of care performance, freeing up capital and clinical resources and managing contracts to optimize financial performance.

B.    Business Segments
During the Reporting Period, Owens & Minor was organized into two operating segments: Global Solutions and Global Products.
The principal sources of revenue in each global business segment are described below:

•    Global Solutions is our U.S. distribution, outsourced logistics and value-added services business. Global Solutions does not manufacture or contract to manufacture products.
•    Global Products manufactures and sources medical surgical products through our production and kitting operations.


C.    Our Products
For the Reporting Period, we conducted an analysis of our products to determine which, if any, were likely to contain 3TGs. The analysis identified that 3TGs were necessary to the functionality or production of certain products that we manufactured or contracted to manufacture during the Reporting Period.

III.    Description of Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (“RCOI”)
We began our scoping process by developing a list of our suppliers that provide us with products that may contain one or more of the 3TGs. We then populated the list with contact information and provided it to our third-party service provider (“Service Provider”). The supplier list was then uploaded to our Service Provider’s software tool that allows us to store and manage supplier requests and documentation.
From there, we removed from the list service providers, indirect materials suppliers, and other suppliers who are inactive. This helped ensure that all suppliers surveyed provided items to Owens & Minor that were used in final products in 2020.
Our Service Provider then conducted the supplier survey portion of the RCOI. Utilizing the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”), version 6.0 or higher, developed by the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA)® and The Global e-Sustainability Initiative, the suppliers on the final supplier list were surveyed on their sourcing of the 3TGs that we identified in our products. The CMRT was developed to facilitate disclosure and communication of information regarding smelters that provide material to a company’s supply chain. It includes questions regarding a direct supplier’s conflict minerals policy, due diligence process, and supply chain, including such supply chain information as the names and locations of smelters and refiners.
As part of the supplier survey, suppliers were asked to complete the CMRT. All communications were tracked and monitored in the Service Provider’s software tool. Non-responsive suppliers were contacted a minimum of three times. Any suppliers that continued to be non-responsive were advanced to an escalation phase and further contacted on an individual basis.
The RCOI also included automated data validation on all submitted CMRTs. The goal of data validation is to increase the accuracy of submissions. All submitted CMRTs were classified as valid or invalid. All suppliers who submitted CMRTs that were classified as “invalid” were contacted to address items such as incomplete data, missing smelter information, or inconsistent answers. All of these communications were monitored and tracked in our Service Provider’s software system. As of May 7, 2021, there were 4 invalid submissions that had not been corrected by suppliers.
Based on the RCOI, we determined that we may have some suppliers that sourced 3TGs from the Covered Countries; therefore, in an effort to locate mines with the greatest possible specificity, we then conducted due diligence on our supplier base.

IV.    Due Diligence

A.    Design of Due Diligence
We designed our due diligence procedures to conform, in all material respects, with the due diligence framework presented by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (“OECD”) in the publication OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas and the related Supplements for tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold.
Our conflict minerals due diligence process includes the five steps described in the Guidance: 1) establishing strong company management systems, 2) identifying and assessing risks in our supply chain, 3) designing and implementing a strategy to respond to identified risks, 4) utilizing independent third-party audits, and 5) publicly reporting on our supply chain due diligence. A summary of our due diligence measures is outlined below.


B.    Performance of Due Diligence

Step 1.    Establishing Strong Company Management Systems

a.    Internal Team
We organized a Conflict Minerals Committee comprised of individuals in management positions across multiple departments, namely Legal, Supply Chain, and Compliance. The Committee members are the (1) Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, (2) Vice President, Global Manufacturing, (3) Assistant General Counsel, Global Products, and (4) Operating Vice President, Global Compliance. The Committee leads our conflict minerals compliance effort and is responsible for implementing our conflict minerals compliance strategy and for overseeing the program.

b.    Control Systems
We have applicable policies and statements such as a Code of Honor that outlines expected behaviors for all Owens & Minor employees, a Supplier Social Compliance Standard that outlines expected behaviors for all Owens & Minor vendors, and a Conflict Minerals Policy Statement (“Statement”). All three items are available on our website. The Statement, in particular, can be found in the Investor Relations section of our website, under Corporate Governance, at www.owens-minor.com.

c.    Supplier Engagement
We utilized the CMRT version 6.0 or higher and our Service Provider’s software reporting tool for collecting Conflict Minerals declarations from our supply base. Using these tools has allowed us to assist our suppliers in understanding our expectations and requirements and increase the rate of responses we have received from our suppliers to our survey requests. We have also communicated with relevant suppliers our expectation that they assist us in complying with our efforts related to our conflict minerals program. This includes obtaining information from them to support the chain of custody of the 3TGs identified in our products.

d.    Grievance Mechanisms
We have several mechanisms that allow people to alert Company management about any concerns they may have about our compliance or ethics. Our Code of Honor sets out ways to report concerns, including a Code of Conduct Hotline and Online Reporting tool, which both allow reports, in any language, to be made confidentially and anonymously at the election of the person making the report. We also have made publicly available on our website policies for communicating with our Board of Directors and with our compliance-oversight Committees of the Board, namely the Audit Committee and the Governance & Nominating Committee. These mechanisms are available to people who may be concerned about compliance with our conflict minerals program or with any other compliance matter.

e.    Maintain Records

We maintain a company-wide document retention policy. The policy extends to the documents accumulated in performing our due diligence for this Report and requires that the documents be retained for a period of ten years. In addition, our Service Provider stores all of the information and findings from this process in a database that can be audited by internal or external parties.

Step 2.    Identify and Assess Risks in the Supply Chain
Due to the complexity of our products and supply chain, it is difficult for us to identify indirect suppliers. We have relied on responses from our direct suppliers to provide us with information about the source of conflict minerals contained in the parts and components they supply to us.
Similarly, our direct suppliers also rely on information provided to them by their suppliers. This chain of information creates a level of uncertainty and risk about the accuracy of the information. We will continue to monitor, adapt, and modify our due diligence practices to conform to recognized industry best practices.
In accordance with the Guidance, it is important to understand risk levels associated with conflict minerals in the supply chain. Each facility that meets the Responsible Minerals Initiative (“RMI”) definition of a smelter or refiner of a 3TG mineral is assigned a risk of high, medium or low based on three scoring criteria, namely: (1) geographic proximity to the DRC and covered countries; (2) Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP) audit status; and (3) known or plausible evidence of unethical or conflict sourcing.


Based on these criteria, the following facilities have been identified with red-flag risks in their supply chain:
•    Tony Goetz NV - CID002587
•    African Gold Refinery Limited (AGR) - CID003185
•    Kaloti Precious Metals - CID002563
•    Fidelity Printers and Refiners Ltd. - CID002515
•    Sudan Gold Refinery - CID002567
If any of these facilities were reported on a CMRT by one of our suppliers, our Service Provider initiated risk mitigation activities, including instructing the supplier to submit a product-specific CMRT to better identify any connection between the facilities and our products, and escalating up to requesting removal of these high-risk smelters from their supply chain.

As per the OECD 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 red flags from the supply chain. In addition, suppliers are guided to the Service Provider’s online learning platform to engage in educational materials on mitigating the risk of smelters or refiners on the supply chain.
Additionally, we evaluated suppliers on their conflict minerals program strength. Many companies continue to develop their programs and still provide an answer of “unknown” in response to our survey questions. We used the following criteria to evaluate the strength of their programs, with the capital letters, below, corresponding to the ones in the CMRT declaration tab:
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 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.
Our identification and risk assessment process also involves: (1) seeking information about 3TG smelters and refiners in our supply chain by requesting that our suppliers complete the CMRT, (2) verifying those smelters and refiners with RMI lists, (3) conducting the due diligence review, and (4) obtaining additional documentation and verification, as applicable. We believe that the inquiries and analysis described above represent a reasonable effort to determine the mines or locations of origin of the 3TGs in our Covered Products.

Step 3.    Design and Implement a Strategy to Respond to Identified Risks
Our Supplier Social Compliance Standards and Conflict Minerals Policy Statement set out our expectations for our suppliers. If these expectations are not met, the business relationship between us and the supplier will be evaluated. For example, if we find that we source 3TGs that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Covered Countries, we will encourage the applicable supplier to establish an alternative source of the minerals that does not support such conflict. If an alternative source cannot be found or the supplier chooses not to respond to this risk, we will assess whether or not we can replace the supplier. We have found no instance to date where we believed it was necessary to implement such risk mitigation efforts.

Step 4.    Utilize Independent Third Party Audits
We do not have a direct relationship with smelters and refiners (“SORs”) and do not perform or direct audits of these entities. Instead, we rely on third party assurances and certifications such as from the RMI’s Responsible Minerals Assurance Process, which uses independent private sector auditors to audit the source, including the mines of origin, and the chain of custody of the conflict minerals used by smelters and refiners that agree to participate in the program.

Step 5.    Publicly Report on Supply Chain Due Diligence
This Report, which constitutes our annual report on our due diligence efforts, is filed as Exhibit 1.01 to our Form SD which is available on our website in the Investor Relations section, under SEC Filings, at www.owens-minor.com.

V.    Results of Due Diligence

A.    Survey Results
As of May 7, 2021, we received responses from 76.6% of our 190 surveyed suppliers. Of those, 122 suppliers claimed no 3TGs in their products, and 12 claimed that they did have 3TGs. Of the 12 suppliers claiming to have 3TGs, 3 indicated that they had tin, 1 indicated tin and tungsten, and 8 indicated that they had gold, tantalum, tin, and tungsten. (The numbers do not sum to 190 because not all surveyed suppliers responded.)


As described above, we surveyed our supply chain and reviewed the responses to determine whether further engagement with them was required. The determination to further engage with them was based on criteria such as untimely responses, incomplete responses, and inconsistencies within the data reported. Suppliers who provided a CMRT were asked to submit SOR information. The results are discussed in the Smelters and Refiners section below.

B.    Efforts to Determine Mine or Location of Origin
Because we do not have relationships with the smelters and refiners, we relied on requests to our suppliers that they complete the RMI template. We believe that process suffices as a good faith effort to determine the identity of the mines or the locations of origin of 3TGs in our supply chain.

C.    Smelters and Refiners
Of the suppliers we surveyed, many completed the RMI template at the company or business unit level, and they were unable to represent that 3TGs from the processing facilities they listed were in components they supplied to us. The quality of the responses we received from suppliers varied.
Many responses provided via the CMRT included the names of facilities listed by the suppliers as SORs. The CMRT responses that did not list at least one smelter for each 3TG were considered invalid, and our Service Provider followed up on these responses, urging suppliers to resubmit the form and include the smelter information. There are still suppliers that were unable to provide SORs used for the materials supplied to us.
For all the CMRT responses that indicated a smelter, our Service Provider compared them to the list of smelters maintained by the RMI. As of May 7, 2021, we validated 332 SORs in our supply chain, and we are working to validate the additional SOR entries. Appendix A lists only the SORs that our suppliers reported as being in their supply chains and that we validated. Appendix B is a compilation of countries of origin, setting out the countries from which the reported facilities source their conflict minerals.
As our suppliers have been largely unable to provide us with the information necessary to determine country of origin at the product level, we are unable to provide additional SOR names or country of origin information at this time. We will continue to work with our suppliers to obtain smelter information at the product level.

VI.    Future Steps to be Taken
We are committed to complying with the provisions of the Rule and expect to continue our efforts to improve our conflict minerals program. As we further develop our program, we intend to take the following steps to mitigate the risk that any of the 3TGs contained in our products could benefit armed groups in the Covered Countries. These may include, but are not limited to, the following:
•    Further engage with suppliers and direct them to training resources to increase our survey response rate and improve the content of the responses;
•    Continue to invest in due diligence tools for our conflict minerals program;
•    If applicable, engage any of our suppliers found to be supplying us with 3TGs from sources that support conflict in the Covered Countries to establish an alternative source of 3TGs that does not support such conflict;
•    Continue to respond to industry trends and legal requirements to improve the traceability of 3TGs in our supply chain; and
•    Further encourage suppliers to provide responses at the product level to enable us to determine which smelters and refiners actually process 3TGs contained in our products.


The table below lists, the smelters or refiners (“SORs”) identified by our direct suppliers that may have been used to process 3TGs necessary to the functionality or production of our products in 2020. Facilities that have been certified as conflict-free by an internationally-recognized validation organization for 3TG SORs are designated in the column furthest to the right, where the word “Conformant” indicates that such an organization validated them as conflict-free.
