3-4 May 2012 - OECD Conference Centre, Paris
Participants in this multi-stakeholder meeting were updated on the findings from interim progress reports on the implementation of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance's supplement on tin, tantalum and tungsten.
Break-out sessions were organised to further identify and resolve the challenges faced by companies while implementing the 3Ts Supplement. These sessions focused on:
- donor-supported programmes to create enabling conditions for effective due diligence
- the desirability of an institutionalised mechanism to support global due diligence efforts in the mineral supply chain
- due diligence in the “upstream” and “downstream” segments of the supply chain
During the break-out sessions, participants were asked to to delve deeper into existing practices and work together to resolve any outstanding challenges related to due diligence in the 3 Ts supply chain.
This meeting was jointly organised by the OECD, the ICGLR, and the UN Group of Experts on the DRC.
