The Conflict Free Sourcing Initiative (CFSI) has released version 4.0 of the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template or CMRT.
The timing of this release may cause confusion on the part of issuers and suppliers who are already done with their CMRT collection processes. CFSI stated that
CMRT 4.0 is not recommended for filing 2014 supply chain data, but is designed for 2015 reporting.
For CY2014 filings, companies should continue using version 3.02 as they have been. When the CY2015 supplier outreach begins, companies should ensure version 4.0 is used.
