[Whitepaper] The Supply Chain Implications of the EU Conflict Minerals Landscape

Assent is proud to release a new whitepaper today, entitled ‘The Supply Chain Implications of the European Union Conflict Minerals Landscape.’ The whitepaper helps companies make sense of their due diligence and disclosure obligations under EU conflict mineral rules.

The global conflict mineral regulatory landscape is growing at an unprecedented rate. There is perhaps no better example of this than in the European Union (EU). In recent years, a number of EU regulations have emerged that either directly or indirectly target the use and import of minerals tied to war, violence and human rights violations. These include the EU regulation on conflict minerals (EU/2017/821) and the EU Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFR) (EU/2013/34), among others.

Our new whitepaper, ‘The Supply Chain Implications of the European Union Conflict Minerals Landscape,’ offers a deep-dive into both the EU conflict mineral rule and the EU NFR, and what these rules mean for companies in scope.
