Conflict minerals compliance has quickly become one of the most pressing issues for both SEC and non-SEC registered companies. Those affected need to examine their supply chain and determine the source of their 3TG minerals through implementation of an effective diligence program, acquire an independent audit, and comply with SEC disclosure requirements.

This can take months. Companies are now beginning to focus on their due diligence activities as initial filings are due May 31, 2014, for calendar year 2013. As we have spoken to a large number of companies regarding their conflict minerals implementation programs, we would like to share with you some observations and key takeaways.

On this webcast, we share our perspective on:

  • Conducting the reasonable country of origin inquiry (RCOI) and supplier due diligence;
  • Systems and data management strategies;
  • Reporting requirements;
  • What to expect in an audit and how to prepare;
  • Selected interpretive and application issues; and
  • Legal challenges to the rule.

We also discuss results of our conflict minerals survey, which will help you benchmark your efforts against what other companies are doing.
