Statement on cluster munitions

Rheinmetall AG fully complies with the position of the German government, which has made considerable diplomatic efforts concerning the adoption of a convention on cluster munitions. This convention was presented at the Dublin conference on
May 30, 2008 and signed among others by Germany at the Oslo conference on December 3, 2008.

Cluster munitions are defined in article 2; such munitions or any kind of related components do not belong to those goods, which are developed, produced, assembled, maintained or delivered by Rheinmetall nor any of our subsidiaries. This also applies for anti-personnel landmines banned already by the Ottawa-Convention of December 1997.

We would like to point out, that all goods produced in our Defence division serve for the purpose of improving protection and security for the armed forces. By this we contribute essentially to grant the fulfilment of military and security-political tasks as imposed by the political bodies within their existing legal frameworks.

It is self-evident for Rheinmetall AG, that all relevant legal and juridical requirements are strictly observed. That refers not only to the domestic but also to the export regulations. It should be mentioned in this context that the German export policy for defence products belongs to the strictest in the world.
