Who must fill in a CMRT?
CMRTs are particularly useful for companies that must confirm the origin of the so-called 3TGs – Tin, Tungsten, Tantalum, and Gold – these conflict minerals that may be contained in your products. This obligation applies to organizations that are directly impacted by the US SEC Dodd-Frank act and the European Union (EU) regulations. Their supply chains are indirectly impacted since, for commercial reasons, they have to contribute to the 3TGs tracking.
How to comply with my Conflict Minerals Reporting obligations?
The idea here is to gather and verify the 3TG (Tin, Tantalum, Tungsten, and Gold) origin information from your supply chains to fill in your own CMRT declaration. What information is necessary to demonstrate that you’ve performed due diligence? For your convenience, the CMRT eases the exchange of data from your suppliers on the origin of 3TGs.
