The Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) has created the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT), a standardized reporting format for disclosing Conflict Minerals, in accordance with Section 1502 of the U.S. Dodd Frank Act. Companies are obligated to submit yearly reports that provide information on the Conflict Minerals status of their suppliers. Although this can be an overwhelming task, where KSSPL offers assistance by providing a CMRT Rollup Report that includes Smelter validation, aggregation, consolidation, and compliance status, which can be easily submitted.
What Is the Dodd-Frank Act?
The Dodd-Frank Act originally known as Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was passed by the US Senate on May 20, 2010 and signed by President Barack Obama on July 21, 2010. This reform establishes conflict minerals reporting requirements and instructions for companies, especially in the electronic and automotive industry. Manufacturers are required to audit their supply chains and report conflict minerals usage.
Conflict minerals currently include the metals tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold, which are the extracts of the minerals cassiterite, columbite-tantalite and wolframite, respectively. Downstream companies often refer to the extracts of these minerals as 3TG.
The Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT) is a free, excel based standardized reporting template developed by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) that helps the transfer of information through the supply chain regarding mineral country of origin and the smelters and refiners.
