OTTAWA, Nov. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Claigan Environmental (www.claigan.com) announces an update to their conflict minerals services. For some
time, Claigan has been involved in reasonable country of origin
inquiries with suppliers of tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold
containing parts and materials. Over the second half of 2013, Claigan
has expanded its work and expertise into the area of smelter reasonable
country of origin inquiries and due diligence.
Claigan's expanded conflict minerals services include
Verification of smelters including identification of distributors vs.
concentrators vs. smelters
Gathering country of origin information from source smelters
Gathering conflict-free information from source smelters
Performing due diligence on smelters that are or may be sourcing from
the DRC or surrounding countries
Generate a technical document summarizing the conflict-free nature of a
company and its source smelters
Review of findings with internal stakeholders
The smelter due diligence phase, which follows the data gathering with
suppliers, is the most critical and difficult phase of conflict
minerals compliance. This phase is recommended to be performed by
specialized organizations and personnel.
Claigan is the leading consulting company in conflict minerals
compliance. In 2012, Claigan testified before Congress regarding the
practical methods for conflict minerals compliance. Claigan's related
work is quoted eighteen (18) times in the SEC final rules for
compliance with Section 1502 of Dodd-Frank. At Claigan, we believe in
'More Results. Less Journey.'
