“At the moment, there is also uncertainty surrounding the longevity of Dodd-Frank Section 1502. What’s invigorating is the commitment we are seeing both within and outside our network of global customers to “do the right thing” whether or not there is a regulatory driver.”

Components of Conflict Minerals Compliance Programs

Conflict minerals in your supply chain?

Conflict Minerals refers to four raw materials; columbite-tantalite, also known as coltan (from which tantalum is derived), cassiterite (tin), gold, wolframite (tungsten), or their derivatives. Privately traded companies in the U.S. are required to submit conflict minerals filings under Dodd-Frank Section 1502. Is your company required to report on conflict minerals in your supply chain?

Smelter Verification

Identifying the source of your supplied metals is the main purpose of Conflict Minerals Compliance. A Smelter is the first stop for raw materials once they have been mined or recycled by the provider. Our in-house smelter verification team regularly updates our smelter aliases database and recently identified 8 smelters of high concern that you should be aware of in 2017.
