- The conflict minerals law covers not just components and materials that you use at your facilities, but all components and materials throughout the supply chain that go into the product. For example, a pair of pants may contain tin used in the zipper, while a blender may contain gold used on the circuit board.
- It is also important to know that not all of the 3TG take the form of metal. Tin can be found in metallized yarns. Tantalum oxide is used to make special glass for camera lenses. Tungsten can be found in ceramic glazes, while gold is used in catalytic converters.
- If your products do NOT contain any 3TG, your customer has requested you to document this via the standard conflict minerals reporting template. Fortunately, it will take a short amount of time to indicate no metals are contained in your products. If you would like to learn how to complete a CMRT stating no 3TG, please click the link below.
