Conflict Minerals

A New Dawn in Reporting on Ethical Conduct in Supply Chains

On August 22, 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued final rules to implement Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which requires companies to provide disclosures about conflict minerals that are “necessary to the functionality or production of a product manufactured by the company.” Conflict minerals like gold, wolframite and other minerals determined by the U.S. government to be financing conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo or adjoining countries.

Once a reporting company has determined that conflict minerals are necessary, a company must conduct a good faith inquiry regarding the origin of its conflict minerals.

Intertek Global Supplier Management (GSM) is an on-line platform that enables companies to efficiently collect, manage and report conflict minerals-related data in a seamless process.

After a general supplier profile is created on the GSM platform, suppliers are prompted by the system to complete Conflict Minerals specific questionnaire based on the EICC/GeSI Conflict Minerals Reporting Template.

With minimal time and cost commitment from your end, Global Supplier Management offers the perfect solution to monitor and manage Conflict Minerals risks in your supply chain.
