Uncover Gaps in Conflict Minerals Reporting Information.

Smelter verification is a critical step in conflict minerals reporting. Proper cross-checking of smelter information allows you to identify smelters of high concern, verify the status of your smelter’s product or metal information, and give you insights into the status of your overall conflict minerals program at your company.

Combat Inaccurate Smelter Information.

Name variations, misspellings, or even misplaced apostrophes in supplier provided smelters can create multiple smelter identities for one true smelter, called smelter aliases. 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.
