Description

During 2006 the copper price reached its highest price ever as a result of the huge international demand for this metal. The global demand for copper and other non-ferrous metals will continue to escalate in line with massive infrastructure developments taking place all over the world. And along with this surge in demand and price naturally comes an increase in criminal activities.

During intensive research conducted with your peers who are involved in the reduction of non-ferrous metals theft, we have discovered that the industry is fighting what seems to be a losing battle. Not enough progress is being made to reduce the incidences of theft of non-ferrous metals, enforcement and punitive measures aren’t adequate, security measures are constantly being breached, criminals are being more and more cunning and fraud and corruption is rife.

Is there a solution to this problem and how can South African companies finally put an end to this growing problem?

IQPC, in association with Business Against Crime (BAC) introduces the COMBATING NON-FERROUS METALS THEFT conference, an event that has been developed to tackle the challenges you are facing in protecting your assets, reducing losses of non-ferrous metals and ensuring that crimes in this industry are addressed.

By attending this event you will gain knowledge about the following key issues:

• The impact of the Second Hand Goods Act and how it will assist in successfully limiting non-ferrous metals theft
• Building and sustaining partnerships to collaboratively improve the risk management, protection and security of non-ferrous metals
• Gaining in-depth knowledge of current organised crime syndicates in order to be one step ahead of their criminal activities
• Improving your security personnel’s skills and knowledge base by implementing more efficient training programmes
• Uncovering the role of the scrap metals industry in the illegal non-ferrous metals trade
