What is my role in helping our customer comply with global conflict mineral rules?
If you are reading this, it is likely your customer is required to collect conflict mineral data from its suppliers. Companies will request that their suppliers complete and submit a Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT).
Once received, these forms help companies identify the presence of tin, tungsten, tantalum and gold (3TGs) in supplied products. This information can then be rolled up into a Conflict Mineral Report (CMR) and submitted to the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission, and other relevant conflict mineral regulatory enforcement bodies.
For more information on how to complete a CMRT, read about common mistakes and best practices in our blog post.
How do I submit requested information to my customer?
When your customer asked you to complete a Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT), they should have included details on how to submit the form. If not, contact your customer and inquire how they would like you to return the CMRT.
If your customer is an Assent Compliance client, you will have received an email requesting the CMRT along with a unique link to your very own Supplier Portal. This portal allows you to easily submit your file and supporting documentation directly to your customer’s compliance manager. If you have any additional questions about this process, your email also contains contact information to request support.
