Lessons Learned from AIM's Participation in the Conflict-Free Tin InitiativeAuthor: David Suraski
Date Published: 9/28/2014 Conference: SMTA International
The Conflict-Free Tin Initiative (CFTI), a group of leading OEMs and suppliers, is trying to establish a direct and documented supply chain for mining conflict-free ores from the DRC. As a private company, AIM is not directly responsible for complying with Dodd-Frank, but many of its larger customers are. As an early member of the CFTI, AIM has used experience gained in complying with the RoHS Directive to develop a quality assurance system that tracks all material from the DRC (and other regions) by lot, weight and location of manufacturing. That system, along with a detailed look at the CFTI, will be presented.
