IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Resources Global Professionals
("Resources"), a leading multinational provider of professional services and

under the Supply Chain practice area to assist companies with meeting their
new conflict minerals compliance and disclosure requirements under the
recently adopted SEC reporting rules.

According to Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer
Protection Act, SEC reporting companies will be required to annually disclose
their use of conflict minerals. The final SEC ruling passed in August requires
comprehensive compliance due diligence starting in January 2013, with the
first filing due May 31, 2014. Conflict minerals originate in the Democratic
Republic of Congo and/or adjoining countries and can be found in a wide
variety of consumer products and industrial electronics, including cell
phones, computers and televisions in industries ranging from aerospace to
telecommunications.

"We believe that complying with these new disclosure requirements is going to
be a daunting and time-consuming task for many companies. That's where
Resources can help," stated Jon Wesoky, Senior Practice Leader of the Supply
Chain Management practice. "Resources has extensive institutional knowledge of
supply chain, audit and compliance issues which enables us to deliver an
efficient and compliant due diligence methodology to determine a client's
conflict minerals exposure in a timely and cost-effective manner."

Resources has created a comprehensive conflict minerals solution including a
Quick Diagnostic to help scope, plan and budget for compliance; a Due
Diligence Package to ensure initial and sustainable compliance; and a Training
Program to prepare clients and their suppliers.

Resources' global footprint allows deployment of seasoned consultants anywhere
in the world. To further enhance our ability to serve our clients, Resources
offers a proprietary content management software, policy IQ, to assist and
monitor the conflict minerals compliance process, including all necessary
documentation and approvals.

"In short, Resources offers a true one-stop solution to a very complex and
challenging task that is going to confront a significant number of SEC filers
and many of their suppliers," said Tracy Stephens, Senior Vice President and
Global Supply Chain Management Practice Leader.
