RMI_LogoResponsible Minerals Initiative

The CMRT was created by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) and is designed to follow the IPC-1755 Conflict Minerals Data Exchange Standard.


IPC-1755 Conflict Minerals Data Exchange Standard establishes the requirements for exchanging conflict minerals data between suppliers and their customers. To meet the needs of a broad range of users, this standard provides flexibility in the scope of the products covered within a single declaration. This standard applies to business-to-business transactions. It is not intended to be used by the general public when making intended purchasing decisions.

This standard is not a compliance guide. This standard is intended to benefit suppliers and their customers by providing consistency and efficiency to the conflict minerals due diligence data exchange declaration process. It establishes standard electronic data exchange formats that will facilitate and improve data transfer along the entire global supply chain.
