Event: Managing Conflict Mineral Issues in a Non-Consumer Environment 2014

'Managing Conflict Mineral Issues in a Non-Consumer Environment 2014' is a brand new event being held on 17th June 2014 in Elstree, UK. It will cover the issued faced when dealing with conflict minerals in the non-consumer industry.

Conflict minerals has been an area of high focus for the consumer industry over the last few years. Apple, Intel, Motorola and Hewlett Packard have all publicly addressed the issue and have emphasised their efforts towards achieving a conflict free supply chain.

As the issue of conflict minerals also extends into professional and industry markets such as Automotive, Defence and Medical, business owners are attempting to rapidly gain knowledge on this complex subject.

'Managing Conflict Mineral Issues in a Non-Consumer Environment 2014' is a focused event for engineers, project managers, procurement specialists and business owners who are seeking to understand this new supply chain threat.

The event will give a social and political history, feedback from engaged manufacturers and distributors and practical guidance from compliance scheme operators. It will also give attendees the chance to learn what tools and processes they'll need to understand in order to satisfy requests from customers to confirm their compliance.

The US Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act law (Section 1502), dealing with conflict minerals issues, came into effect in 2010 and only affects companies who trade with the US. This law will however be be supplemented later this year with extensive European legislation.
