AICPAThe American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), the world’s largest professional accounting association with over 400,000 members in 145 countries, published a new FAQ this week on conflict minerals reporting.

The detailed FAQ comes from AICPA’s Financial Reporting Center, and explains the responsibilities and requirements for conflict minerals reporting from an accounting point of view.

The FAQ will be a helpful tool for manufacturers whose accounting departments have an interest in ensuring environmental compliance.

The FAQ is divided into five small downloadable PDF documents. The first document is an overview and the next four documents contain the 13 frequently asked questions – divided into a few questions per document.
