For Suppliers to US Corporations

 

The Conflict Minerals Reporting Challenge

Your company’s customers are demanding an accurate CMRT, even if your company is private or headquartered outside the US.

 

They need your company’s CMRT to meet the contractual requirements of their customers or to maintain compliance with the US Conflict Minerals Rule. They may even be threatening to remove your company from their approved vendor list, if they are not provided with a CMRT that clearly demonstrates the adequacy of your Conflict Minerals Program.

 

The challenge is to cost effectively put in place the correct Conflict Minerals Reporting Program with procedures to create a CMRT your customers can accept and resources to call on to properly manage Conflict Minerals issues throughout the reporting year.
