Why You Should Attend

4th Annual Conflict Minerals Compliance and Supply Chain Transparency

The 4th edition of this conference examines US, UK, EU, and APAC regulations and reform which make supply chain due diligence and corporate social responsibility a must.  Discussions will tackle key issues including enhancing smelter data and verification processes for both filing and non-filing companies responding to customer requests and addressing the future of conflict minerals to create a more successful program.

Our speaker panel of supply chain, procurement, and compliance experts will benchmark their conflict minerals management program against their peers to more efficiently meet SEC expectations throughout the supply chain and amend their program for future filings.

Key Topics

  • Enhance data collection and review to better manage supplier engagement
  • Mitigate risk by working with smelters to create stronger certification representation
  • Implement transparency throughout the supply chain by leveraging the conflict minerals framework
  • Spearhead developments and requirements, and assess their impact on future compliance initiatives
