What is a Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT)?
The conflict minerals reporting template (CMRT) is a free, standardized reporting template developed by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) and is considered the industry standard reporting template for conflict minerals compliance. The CMRT is designed to facilitate the transfer of information through the supply chain regarding mineral country of origin and smelters and refiners being utilized. The template also facilitates the identification of new smelters and refiners to potentially undergo an audit via the RMI’s Responsible Minerals Assurance Process.
