Retailers and manufacturers have been asking the question, "Where do we begin to comply with the U.S. regulation on conflict minerals?"
Companies are required to publicly disclose the origin of gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten (3TG) used in their products. However the prospect of surveying and requesting data from every tier 1 supplier is daunting and inefficient.
Source Intelligence relieves this burden with its five step process in Conflict Minerals Compliance:
1. Product Filtering
2. Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (RCOI)
3. Due Diligence
