Conflict Minerals Reporting Services
Now that the final conflict mineral reporting
rules have been released by the SEC, the clock is ticking. The
first SEC reports will be due on May 15, 2014 for the calendar
year 2013, which is now less than three months away.
The most cost-effective way to collect this
information is as part of your ordering process. This is when
you have the most leverage over your suppliers.
In addition, your customers will begin to request
conflict mineral data from you. The larger the company, the more
likely that supplying CM data will be made a condition of their
PO or contract.
Now is the time to begin putting the CM data
collection process in place. At a minimum, you need to identify which of
your products contain conflict minerals, where they are found, and the
suppliers for those materials and components. Eventually you will need
to be able to collect reliable data back to the smelter. RSJ stands
ready to demystify the jargon, bring you up to speed, educate your
suppliers, and implement the best and most cost-effective data exchange
tool for your company.
