RMI published new Extended Minerals Reporting Template (EMRT)

Yesterday, 20 October 2021 at RMI members meeting was announced a formal launch of a new template - EMRT v. 1.0

The Extended Minerals Reporting Template (EMRT) can be used to collect due diligence information in both the cobalt and mica supply chains. The template effectively merges the Cobalt and Mica Reporting Templates and is likely to develop to include additional minerals in the future.

  • The Extended Minerals Reporting Template (EMRT) is a free, standardized reporting template created by the Responsible Business Alliance® (RBA®). The EMRT facilitates the exchange of information through the supply chain regarding mineral country of origin and processors being utilized. In doing so, it supports companies’ exercise of due diligence in accordance with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas. The EMRT also facilitates the identification of refiners and processors.
  • The EMRT was designed for downstream companies to gather and disclose information about their supply chains. RMI members collaboratively developed this tool to create efficiencies and simplify the supply chain surveying process. Downstream companies include those companies from the end user up to but not including the refiner or processor. If your company is a refiner or processor, we recommend you enter your company’s name in the Smelter List tab.
