What Is the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template?

The Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT) is the industry-standard template for companies required to file a Conflict Minerals Report. It was created by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) to help companies deliver accurate information to their customers about mineral country of origin, and the smelters and refiners they use. In May 2022, version 6.22 replaced the CMRT 6.1. The institute initially launched in April 2022, but was fine-tuned to eliminate bugs. You can download the new version here:
