The Elm Consulting Group International LLC has released a new revision to the Self Implemented Conflict Minerals Audit Preparation Tool. The update, Revision 1.33, incorporates
- Minor changes in response to feedback obtained from the late June EICC Extractives Supply Chain Workshop VI in Washington DC;
- Further clarifications on the OECD framework, its relationship to SICMAP℠ and SEC auditor standards; and
- Related elements of California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010.
Lawrence M. Heim, CPEA, is leading the firm’s conflict minerals services and SICMAP℠ development:
In our discussions with various companies and workshop attendees, we obtained feedback on a few minor changes and clarifications to improve the tool. In addition, we decided to incorporate the new California law as there are many similarities between those mandates and the conflict minerals requirements.
