[NEW Guest Chapter!] The Conflict Mineral Handbook: Your Guide to Compliance in 2017

A recent Harvard Business Review study revealed 80 percent of companies do not know whether their products contain conflict minerals.

This lack of supply chain insight is prolific in the corporate sector due to the complex nature of global supply chains, and is a key source of operational, legal, financial and reputational risk for companies. In the face of a rapidly expanding regulatory and responsible sourcing landscape in the United States (U.S.), European Union (EU) and elsewhere, conflict mineral compliance has never been more important to your company.

That’s why we asked Ken Manchen, product compliance specialist, to share his insights on conflict minerals compliance with you in a new guest chapter within the Conflict Mineral Handbook. In the chapter, Ken explains his strategy for meeting the requirements of Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, and other conflict mineral regulations, along with his best-practice tips for compliance.
