ICGLR-OECD-UN forum on implementation of due diligence in the 3Ts supply chain


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.
