Section 1 – Conflict Minerals Disclosure

Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report

Roper Technologies, Inc. (“Roper”, the “Company”, “we”, “our” or “us”) is subject to the requirements of Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act based on the fact that the minerals defined therein as “conflict minerals” are necessary to the functionality or production of products we manufacture or contract to be manufactured. The Securities and Exchange Commission defines conflict mineral as “columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite, gold, wolframite, or their derivatives, which are limited to tantalum, tin, and tungsten unless the Secretary of State determines that additional derivatives are financing conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country”. These conflict minerals may be referred to as 3TG in order to not confuse it with the actual findings.

Company level surveys were initiated with affected direct suppliers providing parts and materials for products we manufactured or contracted to manufacture during the 2016 reporting period to begin the reasonable country of origin inquiry (“RCOI”). The Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative Conflict Minerals Reporting Template was utilized as the basis for the RCOI.

Based on the RCOI, we determined that a portion of the 3TG reported by our affected direct suppliers originated, or may have originated, from the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country, may not be from recycled or scrap sources, and that a portion of them have unknown origins. Therefore, we were required to exercise due diligence on the 3TG source and chain of custody following a nationally or internationally recognized due diligence framework. These details are provided in our Conflict Minerals Report, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 1.01 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

Item 1.02 Exhibit

A copy of our Conflict Minerals Report is filed as Exhibit 1.01 hereto and is publicly available at http://www.ropertech.com/conflict-minerals.

Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (“RCOI”)

RCOI Design and Implementation

Our RCOI has been designed in accordance with the SEC Rule to conform, in all material respects, with the applicable portions of the internationally recognized Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development publication OECD (2016), OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas: Third Edition, OECD Publishing, Paris (“OECD Guidance”) and the supplements on tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold. The portions of the OECD Guidance applicable to downstream companies and the RCOI implementation follow:

OECD STEP 1 – ESTABLISH STRONG COMPANY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

Conflict Minerals Policy – Roper’s Conflict Minerals policy, available on our website at http://www.ropertech.com/conflict-minerals, is communicated internally to our businesses and externally to our affected direct suppliers (“Suppliers”) through our annual survey and contract and purchase order terms and conditions.

Background - The U.S. Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and the SEC Rule require publicly-traded companies to disclose whether the products they manufacture contain certain “conflict minerals” –cassiterite (tin), wolframite (tungsten), columbite-tantalite (tantalum), gold, or their derivatives originating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) or an adjoining country – that have been found to support the civil conflict and human rights violations in the region. If so, a report must be filed specifying those products and the due diligence measures taken to determine their source.

Roper’s Conflict Minerals Policy - We are committed to complying with this legislation and with the SEC Rule. Cooperation from our supply chains is necessary to provide source information, as we do not purchase these minerals directly from mines or smelters and, in many cases, purchase finished goods that are several layers removed from these sources. Accordingly, our suppliers are expected to commit to being or becoming DRC conflict-free and to providing the needed transparency of the supply chain so that components and materials supplied to us are DRC conflict-free. Suppliers are to adopt and implement policies, due diligence frameworks, and management systems, consistent with the OECD Guidance, that are designed to accomplish this goal.

We request that our suppliers utilize the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (“EICC”) and Global e-Sustainability Initiative (“GeSI”) Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”) and that our suppliers provide the template to their suppliers successively upstream in order to identify the relevant smelters and refiners. The results of this effort are to be compiled and reported to us through this same template and/or a SaaS solution we provide.

Internal Team - Our four business segments are each composed of multiple subsidiaries; therefore, a management position was established to be the single point of contact to oversee the conflict minerals program. This position works with a team of senior staff and has senior management support and visibility by reporting directly to our Chief Compliance Officer. Each affected subsidiary has designated personnel to coordinate with

 

Page 3 of 13


this management position to oversee the execution of the conflict minerals program within their respective business. Our third-party vendor that supports our annual RCOI surveys and our Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative (“CFSI”) membership are included in our management system.

Controls and Transparency – We engage and request information from our Suppliers regarding their supply chain due diligence practices utilizing the CFSI CMRT and are a member of the CFSI to further support identification and information-sharing of smelters in our supply chain. Documentation is to be maintained for a minimum of five years.

Supplier Engagement – We include contract and purchase order terms and conditions for conflict minerals policy-related expectations and disclosure requirements.

Grievance Mechanism – Roper’s CFSI membership organization includes a Grievance and Complaints Mechanism for risk management and continuous improvement.

OECD STEP 2 – IDENTIFY AND ASSESS RISKS IN THE SUPPLY CHAIN

Identify smelters/refiners - We have established a system of transparency with our Suppliers in order to identify the potential smelters and refiners in our supply chain. Our engagement approach is to survey our Suppliers annually. The survey is based on the CMRT data collection tool, which allows for company level declarations to identify potential smelters or refiners in the supply chain. Smelters and refiners not already audited conflict-free are reported back to the CFSI.

Identify the scope of the risk – Roper utilizes our CFSI member-only RCOI information and responses to the CMRT surveys to determine if any of the identified smelters and refiners are known to source from the Covered Countries.

Assess smelters/refiners due diligence – Assessment and evidence of due diligence practices and capacity building initiatives are performed through our membership of and participation in the CFSI Conflict-Free Smelter Program (“CFSP”) and validation schemes.

Industry-driven programs for spot checks – The CFSP includes audits of smelter’s and refiner’s own facilities.

Due Diligence

Due Diligence Design

Our due diligence measures have been designed in accordance with the SEC Rule to conform, in all material respects, with the applicable portions of the internationally recognized OECD Guidance as follows:

OECD STEP 3 – Design and implement a strategy to respond to identified risks

OECD STEP 4 - Carry out independent third-party audit of supply chain due diligence at identified points in the supply chain

OECD STEP 5 - Report annually on supply chain due diligence

 

Page 4 of 13


Due Diligence Performed

Our due diligence measures performed are described below according to the relative OECD Guidance Steps.

OECD STEP 3 – DESIGN AND IMPLEMENT A STRATEGY TO RESPOND TO IDENTIFIED RISKS

Strategy - Each business manages identified risks with their suppliers while continuing trade.

Our Suppliers - Supplier expectations are communicated through the conflict minerals related purchasing terms and conditions for purchasing orders and contracts, in addition to the annual survey.

Industry-wide Initiatives - We are a member of the CFSI participating in the CFSP and related Due Diligence Practices Team regarding identification of risks regarding smelters or refiners and their upstream mines or location of origin risks along with recommended strategies for mitigation and response. This includes offered training, educational resources and FAQs through our annual outreach and survey containing our Conflict Minerals Policy along with training and capacity building resources of the CFSI, OECD Guidance, and EICC Extractives and Conflict Minerals Resources.

OECD STEP 4 – CARRY OUT INDEPENDENT THIRD-PARTY AUDIT OF SMELTER/REFINER’S DUE DILIGENCE PRACTICES

As outlined in the OECD Guidance, the internationally recognized standard on which our company’s system is based, we support an industry initiative that audits smelters’ and refiners’ due diligence activities. That industry initiative is the CFSI. The data on which we relied for certain statements in this declaration was obtained through our membership in the CFSI, using the RCOI report for members.

OECD STEP 5: REPORT ANNUALLY ON SUPPLY CHAIN DUE DILIGENCE

Our public reporting includes our policy and program information regarding management systems, RCOI, identification of possible processing facilities (smelters and refiners) and due diligence performed as made available on our website and in our filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

An independent private sector audit of our Conflict Minerals Report is not required.

Due Diligence Results

Processing Facilities

Responses to our annual survey identified 299 smelter and refiner processing facilities confirmed as being legitimate by the CFSI that may potentially be in our supply chain. The following is a summary of the 2016 reporting year due diligence results and information from the CFSP member login database as compared to the two previous reporting years:

Conclusion

On the basis of our due diligence for the remaining smelters and refiners, we found with respect to each of our products identified above, the information we gathered failed to provide clarity with respect to the origin and chain of custody of the conflict materials contained in the product, nor did the data reveal whether or not the conflict minerals contained in the product directly or indirectly financed conflict in the Covered Countries.

Steps to Improve Risk Mitigation

Since the period covered by this Report, we will continue to mitigate risk and enforce our overall due diligence as follows:

 

    Communicate our Conflict Minerals Policy and related supplier expectations to affected direct suppliers;

 

    Perform annual inquiries of affected suppliers per the CFSI’s CMRT;

 

    Provide training and educational resource links to our suppliers through the annual survey process; and

 

    Engage in the CFSI CFSP industry initiative to support conflict-free supply chains.
