MetalMiner Answers Manufacturers' Questions on Conflict Minerals Compliance

by on

“I’m not a publicly traded company, but many of my customers are. What am I obligated to do with regard to conflict minerals?”

“I’m going to declare some of my sourced parts as ‘source undeterminable’ to meet 2014 reporting requirements – but what am I going to do after that?”

“Will the NAM lawsuit change reporting requirements for conflict minerals?”

If you’ve asked yourself questions like these, we’re hosting an event you shouldn’t miss.

We at MetalMiner tried to pull together a conflict minerals webinar for later this month, only to come to the conclusion that we’d have to offer several webinars on many different subjects to begin to scratch the surface of the myriad questions readers have sent our way.

Instead, we have opted to organize Conflict Minerals EDGE for May 6, 2013, in Chicago to provide readers with the opportunity to ask their most challenging questions of some of the industry’s most knowledgeable conflict minerals experts.

We’ve structured it as a partial training day (think tools, templates, and checklists vs. PowerPoint slides) to cover conflict minerals implementation best practices, with the other part being TED conference-style roundtable discussions asking the upstream community some of the tough questions around their conflict-free smelter programs – and how it all affects your supply chains.

All attendees will receive specific conflict minerals implementation tools:

  • Checklists
  • Project plans
  • Templates
  • Technology maps and decision guides

Of course, this event will feature great networking opportunities, including a luncheon and cocktail reception.
