Efficiently Conducting 3TG Due Diligence for Global Conflict Minerals Regulation Compliance



The United States Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was enacted in 2010 in response to the recession brought on by the 2008 housing market crisis. The law overhauled financial regulation in the U.S. with changes affecting nearly every aspect of the country’s financial sector. One of the major reforms of the Dodd-Frank Act was Section 1502, which requires publicly-traded companies to conduct due diligence and report on their use of conflict minerals throughout their supply chain.

Section 1502 of the United States Dodd-Frank Act set the standard for conflict minerals compliance, inspiring other countries to adopt a similar framework – most notably, the EU Conflict Minerals Regulation, which was enacted in January of 2021.


This guide will explain the conflict mineral reporting requirements of the United States, the European Union, and the global guidance from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). It will also outline the most efficient process for conducting conflict mineral tracing, and reporting. Finally, it will provide an overview of how a technology-driven platform, such as Source Intelligence’s comprehensive Conflict Minerals solution can streamline the process and simplify conflict minerals regulation compliance.
