The latest version of the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT) was released April 28, 2021 and is now available for download from the Responsible Minerals Initiative – RMI.
The CMRT is a free, standardized reporting template developed by the RMI which facilities the transfer of information through the supply chain regarding mineral country of origin and the smelters and refiners being utilized. The template also facilitates the identification of new smelters and refiners to potentially undergo an audit via the RMI’s Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP).
The major changes you will see in CMRT v. 6.1 include:
- Corrections to all bugs and errors
- Updates to the Smelter Reference List and Standard Smelter List
- Translation improvements
The next version of the CMRT is anticipated to be released in spring 2022.
RMI has also released guidance notes in several languages in regards to Questions 3 and 4 pertaining to covered countries and Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas here.
