Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report

Autoliv, Inc. (the “Company”, “Autoliv”, “we”, “us” or “our”), after conducting a good faith reasonable country of origin inquiry that was reasonably designed to determine whether any of the Conflict Minerals originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country (the “Covered Region”) as required by Rule 13p-1, had reason to believe that columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite, gold, wolframite, or their derivatives, which are limited to tantalum, tin, and tungsten (“Covered Minerals” or “Conflict Minerals”), used in one or more of the products it manufactures or contracts to have manufactured, where such Covered Minerals are necessary to such product(s) functionality or production, may have originated from the Covered Region and may not have been from recycled or scrap sources. As a result, the Company exercised due diligence on the source and chain of custody of its Covered Minerals. The Company’s reasonable country of origin inquiry and due diligence measures are described in the Conflict Minerals Report attached hereto as Exhibit 1.01.
