Conflict Minerals: The Risks of Non-Compliance

Conflict minerals sourced from conflict-affected locations directly contribute to ongoing violence and forced labor in these regions. Conflict minerals include tin, tungsten, tantalum, and gold (3TGs). The presence of these minerals in supply chains impacts investor interest, market access, reputational risk, and customer requirements.

‹ In a three-part mini-documentary series, Assent explores artisanal cobalt mining in the Democratic Republic of the Congo to show how manufacturers can take proactive steps toward responsible sourcing.

Conflict Minerals Due Diligence

Manufacturers in scope of conflict minerals legislation use the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT) to demonstrate due diligence and report annually on smelters and 3TG conflict minerals in their supply chains. This requires spending time and resources contacting suppliers and collecting data, which can be a challenge, as collecting information from suppliers deep in your supply chain is difficult. Assent automates CMRT data surveying to streamline this process.

The Challenges of Conflict Minerals Legislation

Non-compliance with responsible minerals legislation creates several challenges, including:

  • Economic loss: You could lose investors or contracts.
  • Reputational damage: You could face bad PR as a result of conflict minerals and related risks such as forced labor.
  • Supply chain issues: Conflict minerals in your products could create delays in material sourcing due to supply chain disruptions.
  • Taking focus away from your people: In the event of a compliance challenge, staff will spend time addressing the issue instead of the jobs they were hired to do.
