Conflict Minerals – Cobalt, EU-3TG and Sanctioned Entities

Why you should establish proactive business practices to manage the shift from conflict minerals compliance to responsible sourcing.

In 2019 we’ve seen a whirlwind of activity in the conflict minerals compliance area – and trends are indicating that 2020 will be no different.

Cobalt due diligence and reporting is gaining traction; the EU conflict minerals legislation is enforceable starting January 2021, so companies need to begin preparing, and most pressing of all, entities that are sanctioned by the US Office of Foreign Asset Control (“OFAC”) are popping up on smelter lists that force companies to demand action right away.

Tolga Yaprak, Senior Consultant Compliance & Social Responsibility at iPoint, discusses the paradigm shift in the global value chain from a ‘reactive’ and ‘compliance’ driven position, to a ‘proactive’ and ‘good for business’ approach.
