Many companies affected by Conflict Minerals regulations (USA, EU) are also subject to the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (“CA-TISCA”) and other laws targeting human trafficking and slavery in commercial supply chains.
Join iPoint and Development International on February 16, 2016, for a free one-hour webinar to learn more about

- companies’ efforts in complying with these regulations.
In this interactive webinar, Dr. Chris Bayer from Development International will present and discuss the findings of his recent CA-TISCA study. This first benchmarking study on the very first disclosure law addressing human trafficking and slavery within commercial supply chains comprehensively evaluates 1,504 companies on their disclosure compliance with CA-TISCA.
