West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc.
Conflict Minerals Report
For the Year Ended December 31, 2017

Company Overview

This Conflict Minerals Report (the “Report”) of West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc. (the “Company”) has been prepared pursuant to Rule 13p-1 (the “Rule”) and Form SD promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 for the period from January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017. Unless the context indicates otherwise, “West,” “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc. and its subsidiaries.
West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc. is a manufacturer of technologically advanced, high-quality, integrated containment and delivery systems for injectable drugs and healthcare products. Our products include a variety of primary packaging, containment solutions, reconstitution and transfer systems, and drug delivery systems, as well as contract manufacturing and analytical lab services.

Supply Chain

In 2017, consistent with previous years, we determined that the only product for which West sourced columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite, gold, wolframite or their derivatives (tantalum, tin and tungsten) (“3TGs”) that are necessary to its functionality or production (“Covered Products”) was our SmartDose® technology platform, which is designed for controlled, subcutaneous delivery of high volume and high viscosity drugs. Our SmartDose technology platform contains electronic circuitry in the form of a printed circuit board assembly (“PCBA”) and a motor. West uses a contract manufacturer to produce the PCBA and an outside supplier for the motor.
As a downstream company, West purchases the materials and components for our SmartDose technology platform from third parties. We do not have direct relationships with smelters or refiners that produce the 3TGs within our supply chain and do not control any mineral reserves. Thus, any 3TGs that are potentially present in any of our products would have originated solely from our purchases from third parties.
Conflict Minerals Program

West is committed to working within our global supply chain to help ensure compliance with the Rule. In 2017, we continued to develop our conflict minerals compliance program and follow the framework established by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (“OECD”) as tailored for downstream companies.
Our compliance program endeavors to identify whether the 3TGs in our 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) (“Covered Countries”), or whether any of the 3TGs in our Covered Products were from recycled or scrap sources.
In 2017, our Conflict Minerals Steering Committee, consisting of Procurement, Legal, Regulatory and Compliance, oversaw enhancements to our due diligence on the origination of the 3TGs in our SmartDose technology platform. We increased our efforts to educate our suppliers on our expectations related to conflict minerals through an enhanced distribution of our Business Partner Code of Conduct, which includes West’s position statement related to Conflict Minerals, and included language related to conflict minerals in new supply agreements and questionnaires. West’s Business Partner Code of Conduct is a public document available at http://www.westpharma.com/about-west/corporate-responsibility. Information on our website does not constitute part of this document. We will continue to work with suppliers at all levels of the supply chain to increase the quality of the data provided to us. Our conflict minerals compliance program is implemented by our procurement and regulatory groups, and senior management is informed periodically of the progress.

Description of West’s Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry

Once we determined that the only product for which West sourced 3TGs that are necessary to its functionality or production was our SmartDose technology platform, we conducted a reasonable country of origin inquiry (“RCOI”) reasonably designed to determine in good faith whether any of the 3TGs in our SmartDose technology platform originated in the Covered Countries or were from recycled or scrap sources.





In conducting our RCOI on our SmartDose technology platform, we first performed a supply chain survey of the direct suppliers of our SmartDose technology platform components to obtain information on the origin of 3TGs contained in the materials supplied to us. Depending on the sufficiency of the responses received from our suppliers, we also surveyed some of our suppliers’ suppliers. We achieved a 100% response rate as a result of our survey efforts. Lastly, we evaluated the adequacy of the responses and continued to investigate whether any of the 3TGs in our SmartDose technology platform originated in the Covered Countries.
The supply chain survey was implemented and administered by our procurement group. The survey employed the template developed by the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition® and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative known as the Responsible Minerals Initiative (“RMI”) Reporting Template (the “Survey”). The Survey requested general disclosures, the identification of any 3TGs contained in the supplier’s products and the origin of those minerals. We have received information from 100% of the suppliers we surveyed, although not all of the information requested was provided.

Due Diligence Process

Following our RCOI, we conducted a due diligence review of the source and chain of custody of the 3TGs contained in our Covered Products and the facility's Smelters or Refiners (“SORs”) in which they were processed. Our due diligence measures were designed to conform in all material respects with the framework in the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas (“OECD Guidance”) and the related supplements for 3TGs.
As part of this due diligence, we implemented management systems to identify and reduce risk in our supply chain regarding conflict minerals. Our management systems include enhanced communication with our suppliers, improved tracking mechanisms and increased employee education. These systems are designed to ensure the supply chain survey reached all relevant suppliers and adequate responses were received. We evaluated the responses against criteria designed to identify those suppliers that warranted further investigation, including for example, untimely, inconsistent or incomplete responses, requests for confidentiality, missing or erroneous data, whether the supplier was a U.S. publicly-held company, the size of the supplier’s business and the material supplied to us. As appropriate, we followed up directly with suppliers, and in some cases, the suppliers of our suppliers, whose answers required us to obtain additional information, and updated responses.
As a downstream purchaser of 3TGs, or components containing 3TGs, our diligence procedures can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance regarding the source and chain of custody of such materials. Our diligence processes are based on the necessity of seeking data from our direct suppliers and those suppliers seeking similar information within their supply chains to identify the original sources of 3TGs. We also rely, to a large extent, on information collected and provided by third parties. Such sources of information may yield inaccurate or incomplete information and may be subject to fraud.
Conclusion

Our Covered Products are subject to the reporting obligations of the Rule. After conducting a good faith reasonable country of origin inquiry and due diligence, we have concluded that our Covered Products, that is our SmartDose technology platform, contain 3TGs that are necessary to their functionality or production, and based on the information provided to us by our suppliers related to a majority of possible smelters in our supply chain either (a) the sources of the 3TGs contained in our SmartDose technology platform are certified conformant by RMI through its Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (“RMAP”) or are actively seeking conformance by RMAP, or (b) the 3TGs contained in our SmartDose technology platform are not sourced from the Covered Countries. The RMAP implements a risk-based audit program to verify that smelter and refiner efforts are demonstrating due diligence capable of producing responsibly sourced products. The audit program confirms that the smelter facility has participated in procedures that illustrate responsible purchasing and company management processes. Despite our efforts, we did not receive adequate responses from a small percentage of smelters to determine the country of origin (or recycled or scrap status) of all of the 3TGs in our supply chain. Accordingly, we are unable to determine the country of origin and the specific SORs with respect to all of the 3TGs in our Covered Products.
West surveyed 40 direct and indirect suppliers of the components of our SmartDose technology platform, of which we received 40 responses. The responses included identification of the smelters from which any 3TGs were sourced. Our suppliers identified 294 smelters as possible sources for the 3TGs contained in our Covered Products. West conducted due diligence on these smelters to determine whether they are conformant under the RMAP assessment protocols (“RMAP Conformant”) or actively seeking conformance. Smelters are considered actively seeking conformance if they have committed to undergo the RMAP audit. West identified 247 of the 294 as RMAP conformant and an additional 7 that are actively seeking conformance. 
West conducted additional due diligence on the remaining 40 smelters and determined that, although they are not certified by a third party, 16 have programs or policies and procedures on their websites and another 13 have email addresses. As an





additional due diligence step, West sent requests to these email addresses for information related to each of these smelter’s conflict minerals programs. The remaining 11 of the 40 have no information available.
Table 1 below presents, by mineral, the total number of SORs identified and the percentage that are RMAP conformant or are actively seeking RMAP conformance. See Appendix 1 for a list of these SORs by name. We note that the number of SORs that are certified as conformant or actively seeking conformance increased almost 10% over our 2016 report.
Table 1. Smelters or Refiners RMAP conformant or are actively seeking RMAP conformance

Tin
70 of 84 (83.3%)
Tungsten
41 of 42 (97.6%)
Total
254 of 294 (86.4%)

Risk Mitigation

We have taken the following steps to further mitigate the risk that the 3TGs in our Covered Products could benefit armed groups in the Covered Countries:
Enhanced our direct materials supplier screening program to require new suppliers and suppliers of new products or components to provide information regarding 3TGs. The Company also intends to provide additional background and educational information to suppliers where necessary to enhance their responses. Finally, the Company will augment disclosure clauses regarding 3TGs in new supply contracts and supplier contract renewals.

Continued the activities of our Conflict Minerals Steering Committee to: (i) ensure the management systems are adequate; (ii) review the RCOI and due diligence process; (iii) discuss what actions West should take to help mitigate risk; and (iv) report the status of West’s Conflict Minerals program to senior management periodically.

Increased engagement with our direct suppliers to further enhance this process. This included educating suppliers on the importance of the RCOI process and our Company’s expectations and further improving our direct supplier surveys and due diligence process. We enhanced communication with our suppliers by sending them the West Business Partner Code of Conduct, improved tracking mechanisms by developing a database to store supplier information and increased employee education. These efforts were designed to help ensure the supply chain survey reached all relevant suppliers and adequate responses were received. We evaluated the responses against criteria designed to identify those suppliers that warrant further investigation, including for example, untimely, inconsistent or incomplete responses, requests for confidentiality, missing or erroneous data, whether the supplier was a U.S. publicly-held company, the size of the supplier’s business and the material supplied to us. As appropriate, we followed up directly with suppliers, and in some cases, the suppliers of our suppliers, whose answers required us to obtain additional information, and updated responses.
