CARLSBAD, Calif., Nov. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The new Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT) version 3.02 was recently published on November 7, 2014 by the Conflict Free Sourcing Initiative. The newest changes to the CMRT 3.01 version include an updated Standard Smelter List and improvements for a more consistent identification of smelters at the facility-level.
The Conflict Minerals Reporting Template is intended to help industries transfer information throughout the supply chain to determine conflict-free sourcing. The older CMRT 3.0 version identified smelters as either at a corporate or group level, and those identifications represented the individual unique facilities. Now, the newest version aims at representing these unique facilities by eliminating the higher level classifications previously used.
Source Intelligence will host Smelter Verification for Conflict Minerals, A Guide to Understanding the Facts Webinar on November 18th to provide industry leading knowledge on the CMRT 3.02 update. Verification of supplier-provided smelter information is a growing concern for conflict minerals due diligence in industries large and small. The webinar will also cover issues around publicly available data, critical insights about anticipated problems and information on how a Smelter Verification Program can be a cost-efficient service offering.
