Managing an IPSA Audit, in Practice
OTTAWA, 13 Aug. 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - On 26 August 2015, Claigan Environmental Inc. (www.claigan.com) will present a webinar on how to pass a conflict minerals independent private sector audit (IPSA). In July, Claigan Environmental's due diligence process for conflict minerals passed an independent private sector audit against step 2 of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance. This webinar will cover Claigan's experience, recommendations, and strategies.
A company declaring themselves, or a product line, DRC Conflict Free must undergo an independent private sector audit (IPSA) of the design of their due diligence process and of the execution of that due diligence process as described in their conflict minerals report against the OECD for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas. Companies are finding it difficult to determine exactly what they need to pass an audit, are spending too much effort on the wrong things, and are vulnerable to auditing firms that wish to run up the billable hours.
Topics to be covered:
- What is really under scope?
- What does it take to be DRC Conflict Free?
- How to prepare properly?
- What needs to be provided to the auditor?
- How will the data be sampled?
- How much should it cost?
- How can I reduce the cost of the audit without risking my compliance?
Due to the expected interest in this topic, two (2) webinars are being held on August 26th to accommodate a larger audience.
