Pursuant to Rule 13P-1 Under The Securities Exchange Act of 1934

CommScope Holding Company, Inc. presents this Conflict Minerals Report for the reporting period of January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021 pursuant to Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and associated guidance issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Overview of our Conflict Minerals Program

CommScope is a leading global provider of infrastructure solutions for communication networks. In 2014, our leaders defined a sustainability philosophy on corporate responsibility that embraces our core company values. In keeping with our values and supporting our efforts to respect people and our planet, we expect our suppliers to conduct their worldwide operations in a socially and environmentally responsible manner and source raw materials only from reputable organizations pursuant to our Conflict Minerals Policy (the “Policy”) and following the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (“OECD”) due diligence framework, third edition. The Policy is available on our website at https://www.commscope.com/Docs/Corporate-Responsibility/Supplier-Responsibility/CommScope_Conflict_Minerals_Policy.pdf.

CommScope Products

Conflict minerals in the form of tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold were necessary to the functionality or production of products we manufactured or contracted to have manufactured during 2021 within our operating segments (as reported in 2021) as follows:

Video offerings include set top boxes that support cable, satellite and Internet Protocol television content delivery and include products such as digital video recorders, high definition set top boxes and hybrid set top devices.

Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry

We conducted a reasonable country of origin inquiry (“RCOI”) and due diligence on the source and chain of custody using the Responsible Minerals Initiative (“RMI”) Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”) to determine whether any of the necessary conflict minerals in our 2021 products originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) and the adjoining countries (the “Covered Countries”) or were conflict minerals from recycled or scrap sources. The term "conflict minerals" comes from section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and the Conflict Minerals Rule, 17 CFR Parts 240 and 249b, and is defined as columbite-tantalite, also known as coltan (from which tantalum is derived); cassiterite (tin); gold; wolframite (tungsten); or their derivatives; or any other mineral or its derivatives determined by the U.S. Secretary of State to be financing conflict in the DRC or any of the Covered Countries. To make the RCOI determination, we engaged our suppliers to identify the smelters and refiners (“facilities”) of necessary conflict minerals that may have been contained in our products and reviewed available information on the sourcing of conflict minerals by facilities, including information about the facilities provided by RMI regarding processors of conflict minerals.

Our RCOI included:

Identifying relevant in scope suppliers from our Enterprise Resource Planning software for inclusion in the RCOI Conflict Mineral survey. These suppliers provided materials, parts, components containing necessary conflict minerals.
Performing risk assessments or collecting data from suppliers using the RMI CMRT which included questions about the location or mine of origin from in scope suppliers.

Requiring, as part of the survey and our accompanying communications, that, when requested, suppliers provide a statement indicating that conflict minerals are not in use in the supplied parts or complete the CMRT. The CMRT is used to provide CommScope information from the vendors’ supply chains regarding facilities and the origin of necessary conflict minerals processed at these facilities.
If needed, following up with suppliers to clarify, update or complete information reported to us through the CMRT or their statement. Responses requiring follow-up included issues with completeness, consistency, supplier’s completeness of facility data, traceability, and indicating conflict minerals were not used in their products when assessed high risk as containing conflict minerals.

We have communicated to suppliers that we expect all materials supplied to CommScope to be free of conflict minerals from facilities which directly or indirectly support the illegal armed groups in the DRC region. However, continuing to source from conformant facilities from Covered Countries is acceptable.

RCOI Conflict Minerals Status

We have determined with respect to our products containing necessary conflict minerals that we know or have reason to believe that some of the necessary conflict minerals originated or may have originated in the Covered Countries.

Conflict Minerals Due Diligence Measures

Our conflict minerals due diligence process is based on the OECD’s Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, including the Supplement on Tin, Tantalum and Tungsten and the Supplement on Gold (Third Edition 2016) (the “OECD Guidance”), a recognized due diligence framework. We conducted due diligence measures on the source and chain of custody of our conflict minerals to determine whether these conflict minerals originated in the DRC or any of the Covered Countries and financed or benefited non-state armed groups in any of these countries.

Design of our Due Diligence Measures

The design of our due diligence measures is specific to our downstream position in the minerals supply chain and the OECD recommendations for downstream actors that have no direct relationships to facilities. As a member of RMI, we evaluate all facilities reported by suppliers against the RMI Smelter Database and the RMI RCOI Data to determine facility validity and country of origin.

The design of our due diligence process includes the following steps:

1.
Establishment of strong internal company management systems, including the following:
Conflict Minerals Policy.
Cross-functional Team that includes Procurement, Quality, Product Compliance, and Legal, with executive management support.
Conflict minerals process document as part of our ISO 9001/TL9000 Quality Management System “Due Diligence Process for Reporting of Conflict Minerals.”
Identify and assess conflict minerals risks in our supply chain.
Design and implement strategies to respond to conflict minerals risks identified.
Supplier agreement language that includes supplier responsible minerals requirements.
Utilizing a conflict mineral management system that includes data storage, analysis and reporting.
Employees and external parties have access to an ethics reporting system, the CommAlert Line (866-277-2410), or may report via the website https://commalert.alertline.com or email CommScope’s Corporate Ethics Officer at ethics@commscope.com.
Contribute to independent third-party audits of the due diligence practices of conflict minerals facilities by participating in industry organizations.
Report on our conflict minerals supply chain due diligence activities.

2.
Design and implementation of a strategy to respond to identified risks

As a downstream supplier, we do not assess the due diligence practices of facilities. We assess supplier responses against internally established criteria for completeness, consistency and risk. We contact suppliers that provided incomplete, inaccurate or untraceable information to correct and/or obtain additional information. Unresponsive suppliers are identified and forwarded to the Procurement team for further review. Each unresponsive supplier is indicated in a report provided to the Conflict Minerals Corporate Management Team for supplier review to determine if alternative sourcing will be pursued. We encourage in scope suppliers to urge facilities in their supply chain to join the Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (“RMAP”). We evaluate all facilities reported by suppliers against the RMI Smelter Database and the RMI RCOI Data to determine facility validity and country of origin.

3.
Support of industry organizations to carry out independent third-party audits of facilities’ due diligence practices

We support the industry initiative that conducts audits of facilities’ due diligence activities and we encourage our suppliers to source from facilities that participate in the RMAP. As a downstream supplier, we do not have a direct relationship with conflict minerals facilities and do not perform or direct audits of these entities within our supply chain. As a member of RMI, we utilized information made available by RMI concerning independent third-party audits of facilities and country of origin.

4.
Annual reporting through this Conflict Minerals Report.

Future Goals to Mitigate Risk

We are committed to continuously improving our RCOI and due diligence process and intend to take the following steps in 2022:

1.
Continue participation in RMI to drive the improvement of industry tools, resources and traceability programs.
2.
Continue to educate our suppliers and clearly communicate our expectations of our conflict minerals requirements.
3.
Review and follow-up with suppliers on reported unknown, incorrect and high-risk facilities.
4.
As applicable, review unresponsive or high-risk suppliers to determine if alternative sourcing is available.

Due Diligence Results

We had a response rate of 96% to our supplier RCOI and due diligence performed for facilities indicated by suppliers as having sources in the Covered Countries is as follows:

Based on the RMI RCOI Data (dated March 25, 2022) 43 smelters or refiners were identified as sourcing from the Covered Countries. All were listed on the RMI Conflict-Free Smelter list.

One supplier indicated a gold smelter located in Uganda. According to the RMI Smelter Database, the RMAP Audit status for this smelter is "Outreach Required," which means detailed sourcing information is not available at this time. RMI continues to urge this smelter to participate in the program.

One or more of the Russian smelters listed below were reported by 69 suppliers. These facilities were reported as part of the 2021 RCOI and prior to the imposition of recent US/UK/EU Russian sanctions.

Overall, of the 330 unique smelters identified by our suppliers and verified against RMI known smelters and refiners, 231 are listed as “Conformant” by RMI and 16 are “Active” (RMI Smelter Database, dated March 25, 2022).

Efforts to Determine the Conflict Minerals’ Mine or Location of Origin

Through our participation in the RMI and requiring our suppliers to complete the CMRT we have determined that seeking information about conflict mineral smelters and refiners in our supply chain represents the most reasonable effort we can make to determine the mines or locations of origin of the conflict minerals in our supply chain.
