Errors and surprises in 2015 SEC filings
OTTAWA, June 10 2015 /CNW/ - On 18 June 2015, Claigan Environmental Inc. (www.claigan.com) will present a webinar reviewing the errors and surprises in this year's conflict minerals reports filed with the SEC. This webinar will discuss common errors, surprises, and other interesting findings, while also looking ahead to next year's filings and opportunities for improvement. In particular, focus will be placed on avoiding unwanted media attention and passing a potential Independent Private Sector Audit (IPSA).
The SEC's Final Rule on conflict minerals is a very complex and verbose document. Industry is often struggling to understand the fine details of the requirements. The result being a large number of companies are not completing the minimum requirements of Section 1502 of Dodd-Frank and of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance. In a number of cases, many companies are displaying the exact same errors in their SEC filings which strongly suggests a growing trend of errors committed by service providers.
Topics to be covered:
- Summary of findings
- Due diligence gaps
- Key questions to ask your internal team or service providers
- Errors in reports
- Inadvertent reporting of red flags in sourcing information
- Preparing for next year
- Potential efficiencies for 2016
- Comparison of filings against NGO criteria
- Managing your auditor
Due to the expected interest in this topic, two (2) webinars are being held on June 18th to accommodate a larger audience.
