Conflict Minerals Compliance
Supply Chain Deep Dive
Adhering to the Conflict Minerals regulations around the globe requires a deep dive into your supply chain all the way down to the original Smelter or Refiner (SOR) location.
Affected companies are required to perform Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiries (RCOI) to ensure that all of the Tin, Tantalum, Tungsten and Gold (3TG) minerals used in their products did not come from regions engaged in violence or conflict. This is an expensive, complicated and time-consuming process.
GreenSoft Technology provides data collection, validation and review on the sources of the 3TG minerals in your products. Our Conflict Minerals solution supplies you with the documentation you need to prove your company is in compliance with Conflict Minerals regulations.
GreenSoft's Conflict Minerals Solution
GreenSoft Technology's data collection team will collect Conflict Mineral Reporting Templates (CMRTs) and Extended Mineral Reporting Templates (EMRTs) from your suppliers on your behalf, and validate those CMRTs and EMRTs for completeness and accuracy. We track the regulated smelter lists to keep you aware of any updates or changes.
• High quality data through a comprehensive validation process to ensure the CMRTs and EMRTs that we collect for you are accurate and complete.
• Rigorous follow-up with suppliers during RCOI to minimize dead-ends with unresponsive suppliers.
• Dedicated team to monitor changes to Conflict Minerals legislation and smelter lists to ensure you are always up-to-date.
• Dedicated Project Manager assigned to your project to provide bi-weekly status updates and keep your project on track.
What are CMRT and EMRT forms?
Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT)
After the U.S. Dodd-Frank Act was passed in 2010, requiring publicly traded companies in the U.S. to disclose their use of conflict minerals, the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) industry association created the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT) form.
The CMRT form is a free, standardized reporting template used by the industry to facilitate the transfer of conflict minerals data through the supply chain.
Extended Minerals Reporting Template (EMRT)
EMRT forms are used to facilitate the transfer of due diligence information on the presence of cobalt and mica in supply chains.
The EMRT form was developed in accordance with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas.
Common CMRT & EMRT collection hurdles
The process of collecting CMRTs and EMRTs from suppliers all the way down the supply chain is time-intensive and frustrating.
Common roadblocks that companies encounter while collecting supply chain data are:
• Unresponsive suppliers or difficult suppliers that require numerous follow-ups.
• Receiving incomplete CMRTs/EMRTs or CMRTs/EMRTs with errors from suppliers.
• Receiving company-level CMRTs/EMRTs from suppliers that need to be broken down by part numbers.
• Disclosed smelters are not recognized as the "validated" smelters per CMRT/EMRT requirements.
GreenSoft Technology leverages our supplier relationships and CMRT/EMRT validation experience to overcome these hurdles for you.
We handle the data collection and validation on your behalf, so that you can focus on your core business.

Smelter validation provides the best data quality
One of the due-diligence responsibilities required of companies under Conflict Mineral legislation is to make a reasonable effort to ensure you're using accurate information from your suppliers.
Validating the Smelters or Refiners (SORs) listed on the CMRT and EMRT forms that you receive from suppliers has become a key responsibility under RCOI guidelines.
GreenSoft Technology provides SOR Validation services. We'll put in the leg work to check on these SORs for you so that you can focus on your core business.
GreenData Manager software makes reporting easy
Users can generate CMRTs/EMRTs on your own products at the company-level, product family-level, or product-level, as well as generate due-diligence reports and smelter analysis reports.
