Smelter Aliases

Is your smelter information accurate?

What are smelter aliases?

Name variations, misspellings, or even misplaced apostrophes in supplier provided smelters can create multiple smelter identities for one true smelter. At Source Intelligence, we call these smelter identities, smelter aliases. Not validating smelter aliases against a comprehensive database will lead to incorrect smelter identification. 

Inaccurate smelter information

Performing a smelter alias analysis is an essential part of any conflict minerals program to ensure your smelters are verified. Inaccurate smelter identification can lead to false conclusions about your company’s raw materials sourcing and could impact compliance with conflict minerals regulations or worse, your company’s brand reputation.
