CONFLICT MINERALS: On April 10th, Industry Veterans Will Speak Out on the Changing Requirements of Due Diligence

Mar 27, 2013 5:40 PM ET

For anyone who’s read the 350+ page SEC Dodd-Frank Section 1502 final rule, there’s the conclusion: the complexity of compliant due diligence and the accompanying reporting requirements can lead to startling exposure for your Senior Management, your company and your brand.

Get the facts behind compliant due diligence.

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 due diligence capabilities when evaluating your suppliers.   

The practical experience needed to determine how many suppliers a company should be worried about, which suppliers are in scope, and which private companies could possibly still be affected (because their products impact a publicly traded company’s supply chain) can scarcely be understood right out of the gate.  The invitation only, April 10th, discussions will help you determine your next steps to understanding the complicated task of Due Diligence Compliance and preview the leading technology platform for conflict minerals supply chain programs.

A partial list of panelists include:

-SRZ’s Michael Littenberg Esq., extensively experienced in advising on the conflict minerals rule, and author of SRZ’s White Paper regarding Conflict Minerals, will give practical application knowledge on the unforeseen requirements that can lead to exposure for your company and brand.

-Dr. Jennifer Kraus, Chief Scientific Officer at Source Intelligence, will explain what is meant by “Due Diligence Redefined” using the  OECD guidelines for recording and reporting that is required under the new rule.
