There has and continues to be skepticism surrounding the sourcing of tantalum from the Democratic Republic of Congo. However, market participants continue to show interest in the iTSCi program, an effort to develop transparency in the supply chain in response to conflict mineral concerns. As of the beginning of May, there were 33 members and there were 19 applications pending, which were expected to be approved shortly.
