Understanding Your 2014 Conflict Minerals Audit Obligations

Complimentary Webinar, Thursday, January 30, 2014,
8:00am-9:00am PDT (11:00am-12:00pm EDT, 4:00pm-5:00pm GMT)

At this stage in your Good Faith Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (RCOI), you are likely looking to finalize your conflict minerals supply chain inquiries and to commence your preparations for the May 2014 filings. Undoubtedly, you will have accumulated a large volume of data that you are going to have to make some sense out of, and your Conflict Minerals Committee is trying to understand what will be necessary for your upcoming filing. You will be asking yourselves questions like: can we claim 'Undeterminable Origin', what type of audit should we be performing this year in advance of the filing and what preparations should we make?

As the recognized leader in the conflict minerals data analytics space, Foresite is pleased to announce the next installment of our popular webinar series: Understanding Your 2014 Conflict Minerals Audit Obligations Thursday, January 30, 2014 from 8:00AM-9:00AM PDT (11:00AM-12:00PM EDT, 4:00PM-5:00PM GMT).

To support your preparations, Foresite will be reviewing the dominant points you will want to consider in preparation of your filing.

The topics for this session will include:

  • A brief review of the Conflict Minerals Ruling from Aug 2012.
  • The highlights of what is required for SEC Reporting in FY14 and FY16.
  • A perspective on why a consistent data exchange format and process is key for data collection process integrity.
  • A review of the type of efforts/processes that should be documented by your supply chain management/outreach teams.
  • An overview of how to respond to your Customers' Conflict Minerals Requests.
  • The impact of requests for product level declarations from your customers.
  • The key processes you should have in order to facilitate an independent auditor's review.

We have been working with major corporations on Conflict Minerals throughout 2012/2013, and we invite your feedback and questions. In addition, we look forward to continuing our on-going conflict minerals work next year, as we apply the lesson's learned and seek to improve the quality and quantity of the available conflict minerals data.
