Timely supplier responsiveness is also a key enabler for conflict minerals compliance. During the 2013 reporting year, Source Intelligence found that suppliers can take as long as 180 days to respond to a reporting company’s conflict minerals inquiry.
The white paper, Overcoming Supplier Resistance: How Educating Suppliers Impacted Responses to Conflict Minerals Regulation in 2013, explains how, in order to maximize the completeness of compliance programs, issuers must both improve the timeliness of supplier responses through education and allow sufficient lead time to account for laggards and resistors.
