Current best practices for Dodd-Frank Section 1502 Conflict Minerals compliance are documented.


Woburn, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/11/2013 --Green Status Pro, the leader in Conflict Minerals Due Diligence Reporting, announced the immediate availability of its most recent White Paper, Conflict Minerals Reporting: A Practical Guide for Conflict Minerals Compliance Managers. This report details the current status of Conflict Minerals program implementation as of September 2013.

“This White Paper is an essential guide for the six thousand SEC Filers directly impacted by the legislation, as well as the hundreds of thousands of suppliers throughout their global supply chains,” commented John Logan, CEO of Green Status Pro. “It is a pragmatic guide for anyone who is affected by the conflict minerals regulation. It includes actionable perspectives from today’s industry leaders.”

Time is running out to meet the conflict minerals reporting requirements of Dodd-Frank Section 1502. Green Status Pro’s White Paper will guide both SEC Filers and their Non-Filer suppliers to effectively manage the risks associated with Conflict Minerals Reporting. It will assist executives to determine their preparedness, identify critical gaps in their compliance program, and implement best practices.

“Conflict Minerals is a humanitarian issue that companies want to support. But it is also a compliance issue that must be managed accordingly,” stated Rob Kasameyer, president of Green Status Pro. “Conflict Minerals is the most significant regulatory requirement for manufacturers since Sarbanes-Oxley but is broader and more complex. It impacts enterprise risk, customer and supplier relationships as well as compliance costs.”

This timely White Paper is available for free download from the company’s website, Green Status Pro.
