Electronics Components Distributors Save on Conflict Minerals Compliance Costs With Product Filtering

SOURCE: Source Intelligence®

DESCRIPTION:

The goal of filtering is to reduce the effort required for compliance by only querying suppliers whose products are in scope. For companies, particularly electronics components distributors, with thousands of products that need to be considered, effective filtering can help reduce the compliance burden and the number of data collection inquiries passed up the supply chain. However, the desire for minimizing the work required to comply must be balanced with risk management. A manufacturing process involving the use of 3TG can occur several layers up the supply chain and may not be known to downstream companies utilizing a given component or part in a final assembly. Thus, any product for which 3TG may be necessary to functionality or production should be investigated.
