Satisfy due diligence requirements for Dodd-Frank Section 1502 and comply with public reporting mandates from the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) with SCS Global Services. Our third-party Conflict Minerals Report auditing and due diligence system development enables you to properly disclose sources of conflict minerals and helps you mitigate your risk of supporting armed conflict within the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and surrounding countries.

SCS has expertise in precious metal traceability and transparency as well as three decades of experience in social and environmental third-party certification and supply chain assessment. We developed the Certified Responsible Source™ program, are members of the International Precious Metals Institute (IPMI), and are accredited by the Responsible Jewelry Council. We work with trade associations to develop risk-based due diligence approaches for identifying conflict minerals, and are also actively engaged with the Electronics Industry Citizens Coalition (EICC) to optimize EICC’s Conflict Free Smelter Program.
