    Facilitating Compliance With Evolving Conflict Mineral Regulations
Overview: Responsible Minerals — Conflict Minerals Module

Why Use a Conflict Minerals Data Management Solution?

As part of their corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs, companies have a variety of conflict mineral-related requirements to satisfy in order to ensure compliance with regulations around the world, such as EU conflict mineral regulations. For example, certain conflict mineral laws require companies to demonstrate their efforts to ensure the 3TGs (tin, tungsten, tantalum and gold) they use in their products are not funding armed conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or surrounding regions. To comply, companies must collect, organize and report on mass amounts of conflict mineral data collected from their supply chains, and in some cases, file reports with governing bodies. Supply chain transparency and traceability is an essential part of conflict mineral compliance to allow for accurate reporting and data management.

European Union Conflict Minerals: Beyond the Dodd-Frank Act

The European Union (EU) Conflict Minerals Regulation introduces due diligence and reporting requirements that are more stringent than those outlined by Section 1502 of the U.S. Dodd-Frank Act. The Assent Compliance Platform can help you meet these new conflict minerals requirements, helping you avoid product recalls and maintain sales in the EU region.
