The Dodd Frank SEC Conflict Minerals legislation requires companies to comprehend and subsequently disclose the use of minerals (3TG) in conflict areas such as the DRC in order to protect human rights in the supply chain.
In the EU, importers of 3TG must conduct due diligence to reduce the risks associated with conflict minerals. Whether or not you fall under the SEC reporting requirements or EU legislation, almost every company is impacted by the requirements of reporting the presence of conflict minerals within their supply chain. Unlike chemical restriction regulations, an organisation must interrogate their entire supply chain to find the ultimate source of the minerals they use. This requires a significant effort in campaigning and analysis of data.
