Who is in Scope of Mandatory Reporting?

The European Commission, European Parliament, and the European Union Council reached a political understanding on the EU legislation on trade in 3TG. The primary objective of the legislation is to bring importers of 3TG in line with the OECD Due Diligence Guidelines for Responsible Sourcing. While the due diligence and reporting is weighted on upstream importers, engagement from all members of the supply chain will be required. The EU believes this model of reporting is far more efficient and approachable for companies who are in scope of the regulation.
What is the Difference Between US and EU Conflict Minerals Legislation?
The EU policy largely draws from Dodd-Frank 1502 but also shows more determination to promote transparent and sustainable trade with more high-risk areas included, not just the DRC and covered countries. EU Regulation on conflict minerals differentiates upstream and downstream companies and expects compliance at different levels or requirements. To assess their supply chain, companies have to follow a 5-step framework as laid out by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
