September 05, 2013 | Palo Alto, CaliforniaMetricStream, the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, will participate in the 12th Conflict- Free Sourcing Initiative workshop at Washington D.C., hosted by the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition from Sept 10 -11, 2013. MetricStream will also demonstrate its market leading Conflict Minerals Solution at the two day event.

Public companies in the U.S. and their private suppliers around the world are now under a legal obligation to report the presence and source of 3TG minerals in their products. Section 1502 of the Dodd Frank Act has decisively brought responsible sourcing to the forefront, compelling companies to design and implement a reliable conflict minerals management program. As May 31, 2014, the date for filing the first conflict minerals report nears, many companies require more clarity on the scope and applicability of the law, as well as a roadmap to establishing a sustainable conflict minerals tracking and disclosure program.

The two day workshop will provide valuable updates on the Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative program and tools, including the Conflict-Free Smelter Program. Attendees at the conference will also have the opportunity to witness a 30 minute product demonstration on the capabilities of the MetricStream Conflict Minerals Solution on September 11.

MetricStream’s integrated and comprehensive Conflict Minerals Solution encompasses advanced capabilities and tools, and a scalable compliance infrastructure to build a strong conflict minerals reporting requirements team, educate and collaborate with suppliers, conduct surveys to gather information on conflict minerals, analyze the data, conduct due diligence and audits, and finally file its Form SD with the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC). MetricStream’s software solution and consultation services not only help companies take the first step towards responsible sourcing, but also gain complete visibility into their supply chain activities and performance.
