Section 1 – Conflict Minerals Disclosure

Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report

Church & Dwight Co., Inc. (the “Company”) has determined that certain “conflict minerals” (as defined in Section 1502(e)(4) of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) are necessary to the functionality and/or production of certain products manufactured or contracted to be manufactured by the Company in 2015 (the “Covered Products”). Consequently, the Company conducted in good faith a reasonable country of origin inquiry regarding such necessary conflict minerals, reasonably designed to determine whether any of the conflict minerals originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country (collectively, the “Covered Countries”), or were from recycled or scrap sources. Based on its reasonable country of origin inquiry, the Company has determined that certain of the conflict minerals used in the Covered Products may have originated in the Covered Countries. Accordingly, as required by applicable rules, the Company also performed due diligence on the source and chain of custody of such conflict minerals as described more fully in the Conflict Minerals Report, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 1.01.

The Company is filing this Specialized Disclosure Report (Form SD), including the Conflict Minerals Report attached as Exhibit 1.01 hereto, for the calendar year ended December 31, 2015 to comply with Rule 13p-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

Item 1.02 Exhibit

The Company’s Conflict Minerals Report for calendar year 2015 is filed as Exhibit 1.01 to this Form SD and is incorporated herein by reference.
