Do I need information from all my suppliers to complete my reasonable country of origin inquiry (RCOI)?

The SEC final rule requires that the issuer’s RCOI must be reasonably designed. Company RCOIs may vary based on the issuer’s size, products, relationship with suppliers and other factors. The issuer is not required to receive representations from all of its suppliers as long as the issuer does not ignore warning signs or other circumstances that indicate the remaining amounts of conflict minerals originated or may have originated from the covered countries.
