Your Guide to Conflict Minerals Compliance

Your Guide to Conflict Minerals Compliance

Half a million dollars.

That’s what companies spent, on average, between 2013-14 to comply with the Dodd-Frank Act’s conflict minerals rule.

The rule is broad in scope, requires extensive supply chain due diligence and detailed reporting. It requires a lot of work on the part of compliance specialists to meet all of the rule’s requirements. It’s no wonder why companies spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to comply with the regulation.

However, as was shown in Dr. Chris Bayer’s Conflict Minerals Benchmarking Study last year, some companies are still developing their conflict minerals compliance programs. For these companies, and anyone interested in company obligations under Dodd-Frank, we have developed an eBook specifically addressing Dodd-Frank section 1502 compliance.

Assent Compliance has put together a comprehensive guide that will give CFOs and compliance executives all the tools they need for Dodd-Frank conflict mineral compliance, as well as a process for compliance which can be used for any restricted or controlled substances. This is an excellent toolkit companies can use to build a successful program and ensure they are meeting their obligations under the regulation.

In this eBook you’ll find a comprehensive overview of the Dodd-Frank Act’s conflict minerals rule, as well as guidelines for compliance. The eBook was developed alongside industry partners and provides updates on ongoing developments with the rule from a legal perspective.

The eBook answers a variety of questions, such as:

  • How to comply with the Dodd-Frank Act Section 1502
  • How to select a vendor to aid with conflict minerals compliance
  • Which departments do you need to engage with and why?
  • How do you survey your supply chain?
  • What does a conflict mineral program implementation plan look like?
  • What are the steps of the conflict minerals diligence process?
  • and more!

The Conflict Mineral Handbook is a free eBook available for download here.
