Cette publication est également disponible en: ENG FR NL

A coalition of European NGOs working on responsible mineral sourcing, including IPIS, published a review paper discussing the state of implementation of the European Conflict Minerals Regulation across European Union Member States. The report highlights the shortcomings of the Regulation and the general lack of transparency that hinders effective and efficient monitoring of companies.  

The NGO coalition highlights the mains risks at stake for the implementation of the Regulation. One of them is the application of volume import thresholds that risks excluding the riskiest imports, including from CAHRAs.
