06/21/2012 - CDX Release 2.0 is online
CDX Release 2.0 will contain the following improvements and changes:
New Module for Conflict Minerals
Based on current knowledge about the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the "Dodd-Frank Act"), Section 1502, all US publicly traded companies that use tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold in the product or production processes will be required to file disclosures and reports with the SEC as to the country of origin of the mine source. The companies are required to audit these reports to assure whether they are sourcing from conflict mines or not. Companies not subject to SEC filing in the United States, but that supply companies required to provide disclosure, will need to maintain similar information to allow their customers to comply. CDX has a new module for Conflict Minerals to assist in the declaration process and roll up based on current knowledge of the requirements. As finalized rulings are communicated, this module may change. In order to create a Conflict Mineral Declaration (CMD) smelters have additional company registration and maintenance options related to location of mines for conflict minerals.
New Clipboard Functionality
CDX has implemented a new clipboard function to hold material datasheets, basic substances and requests for easy access. For example, a material often used can be kept in the clipboard for reuse in different material datasheets.
New Statistic Functionality for Company Administrators
In the administration menu, company administrators have access to statistical data such as material datasheet status and other useful data.
