Pasadena, CA, August 11, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- GreenSoft Technology, Inc., a leading provider of environmental compliance data services and software, has launched a new data service for conflict minerals compliance: Smelter or Refiner (SOR) Validation.
Since companies began receiving Conflict Minerals declarations from their suppliers in fulfillment of Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act, the SEC and the NGOs reviewing the submitted data have identified weaknesses and gaps. Many SORs identified in supplier disclosures have not been validated as legitimate. Others which have been confirmed as legitimate are lacking validation regarding sourcing of conflict minerals from covered countries.
To address this problem, it is necessary to implement a system of communicating with the disclosed SORs directly or a chain of communications with the suppliers and their sub-tier suppliers. GreenSoft offers an SOR Validation service to communicate with the SORs directly, or to follow up diligently with the supply chain to address this issue.
Larry Yen, President of GreenSoft Technology, states: “RCOI due diligence responsibilities for OEMs can be fulfilled through our SOR Validation service, releasing OEMs from the burden of contacting many suppliers, sub-suppliers, and even SORs directly. Instead of spending time chasing suppliers or SORs for data validation, OEMs can focus on their core competencies. It has been GreenSoft’s mission from the start to simplify the compliance process and handle the leg work for OEMs so they can focus on their core business.”
GreenSoft’s SOR Validation service includes communicating with supply chains for document gathering and validating the supplied information across databases such as CFSI/CFSP and LBMA/RJC/DMCC.
GreenSoft has released a Data Sheet on the new SOR Validation Data Service to provide customers and the industry with a detailed overview of the service, downloadable at http://greensofttech.com/site/data-services/conflict-minerals/smelter-validation-with-greensoft/.
