Conflict Minerals Legislation Spreading Around the Globe

Our team will contact your suppliers as part of your RCOI.

The U.S. was the first country to regulate Conflict Minerals, but the E.U. and Canada are deliberating similar legislation.

Companies subject to these laws are required to do a RCOI on all their 3TG minerals (tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold) to determine if the minerals come from the Covered Countries. It requires numerous follow-ups with the suppliers for clarification or correction. This is the most intensive and time-consuming step in the process.

GreenSoft’s Conflict Minerals Data Collection Service will overcome these hurdles for you, so you can focus your time on developing and selling your products.

Common roadblocks manufacturers encounter while collecting CMRTs from suppliers  
  • Unresponsive suppliers or difficult suppliers that require numerous follow-ups
  • Incomplete CMRTs or CMRTs with errors
  • Conflicting information provided on a CMRT
  • Company level CMRTs that need to be broken down by product number
  • Disclosed smelters are not recognized as the “validated” smelters

Smelter Validation Makes the Best Data Quality

One of your due diligence responsibilities as a manufacturer is to make a reasonable effort to ensure you’re using accurate information from your suppliers. Validating smelters or refiners from the CMRT forms provided by your suppliers has become a key responsibility due to RCOI guidelines. We provide Smelter Validation Services; let us do the leg work so you can focus on your core competencies.
