CMRT 4.20 Release - General Information

The first revisions to the CMRT Conflict Minerals Reporting Template 4.0 has been released as of April 30th, 2015. The CMRT has been widely adopted by companies trying to determine 3TG sourcing and has become a great leading multi-industry tool that helps facilitate information gathering downstream in the supply chain.

While the template has not made any drastic changes in comparison to the last major revision 2.03-3.0 it has made a number of updates:
¡EMinor changes to question text throughout
¡EReplaces the Standard Smelter names with the Smelter Reference list
¡EUpdated translations of modified text
¡EMain tabs highlighted for easy navigation

The CMRT 4.20 is free just as previous versions for manufactures to download. The CFSI recommends that 2014 supply chain data be gathered with CMRT 3.0 and higher versions using the 3.02 standard smelter reference list, there is no expectation to make a quick conversion to 4.0 for the 2014 reporting period but this should be used in 2015 information gathering.

Terminology Changed In The CMRT 4.20

Previous versions of the CMRT used the term ¡§Conflict Minerals¡¨ when referring to Tin, Tungsten, Tantalum and Gold. The newest version has adopted the term 3TG to reference the minerals. Why was this change made? Conflict Minerals are minerals that originate from conflict mines within the DRC. All Conflict Minerals are 3TGs but not all 3TGs are conflict minerals. This is an important change as it clarifies what data the template it trying to gather.
