UL Introduces New WERCSmart Conflict Minerals Platform to Meet Dodd-Frank Conflict Minerals Requirements

To help companies meet Dodd-Frank 1502 reporting requirements, UL's Information and Insights division has introduced WERCSmart Conflict Minerals Platform. It includes SaaS platform that delivers real-time product-attribute intelligence; database and decision-support tools for collecting and reporting on information from suppliers; and assessment tools for vetting products, investigating sources, and monitoring sustainability performance improvement across supply chain. Most corporations struggling to meet the Dodd-Frank Section 1502 reporting requirements still don't know if their products contain conflict minerals or not. The opacity of complex and dynamic global supply chains can easily obscure the source of minerals and other raw materials, and hide all kinds of surprises. In fact, the conflict minerals challenge illustrates how far industries still are from supply chain transparency, and the key role that transparency plays in achieving sustainability goals. Some specific capabilities of the WERCSmart Conflict Minerals Platform include: SaaS platform that delivers real-time product-attribute intelligence; Database and decision-support tools for collecting and reporting on information from suppliers, for making smarter decisions about sourcing; Assessment tools for vetting products, investigating sources, and monitoring sustainability performance improvement across the supply chain; Program development and advisory services that help companies design and implement due-diligence practices for sourcing raw materials in compliance with traceability requirements.
