CMRT 6.01 and CRT 2.11 Available for Download

RMIThe Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) organization has released an updated Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT) version: CMRT 6.01, and a new Cobalt Reporting Template (CRT) version: CRT 2.11.

CMRT and CRT forms are used to exchange conflict minerals data across the supply chain in order to comply with the US Conflict Minerals regulation.

CMRT and CRT forms are typically updated once per year by the RMI organization. The last CMRT update was version 5.12 in April 2019, and RMI anticipates the next version will be released in Spring 2021.

RMI recommends using version CMRT 5.01 or higher for 2019 declarations with SEC filing deadlines in May 2020, and CMRT 6.0 or above for 2020 declarations with SEC filing deadline in May 2021.

The major changes in CMRT 6.01 include:

  • Corrections to all bugs and errors
    • Update to ISO country, state and province lists
  • Conformance to IPC-1755, which incorporated EU Conflict Minerals Regulation in the wordings of the following questions: Q 4 (newly added), Q H (formerly Q I), removal of former question C
  • Updates to the Smelter Reference List and Standard Smelter List
  • Added the support of EU Conflict Minerals Regulation in the Declaration sheet

The new CMRT 6.01 can be downloaded here, and the new CRT 2.11 can be downloaded here.
