Conflict Minerals Clock Thunders in Global Brands Ears
Within the last month, the Conflict Minerals 'clock' has gone from a mild tick to a loud thunder in the ears of Global Brands. Source Intelligence has received unrivaled amounts of Request For Proposals (RFP) indicating mass awareness of the importance to comply.
For anyone who’s read the 350+ page SEC Dodd-Frank Section 1502 final rule, you know the Conflict Minerals clock is ticking. Reporting requirements to publicly disclose the origin of gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten (3TG) used in products began on January 1, 2013 and requires specialized filtering, due diligence and reporting capabilities when evaluating your suppliers.
"The race is on, companies need to get in gear and figure this out fast," said Jess Kraus, President and CEO of Source Intelligence. "The time to choose your conflict minerals compliance solution is now."
