Comments Off on Managing the Requirements of the SEC Conflict Minerals Rules

By a 3-2 vote, the US SEC agency’s commissioners agreed to adopt the final rules required to implement Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Production Act. The respective Conflict Minerals Rules mandate disclosures of the origin of the derivative minerals that are the refined into gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries. Due to the ubiquitous use of the metals covered by the conflict minerals rules, it is widely assumed that the scope of parties that will be impacted by the rules will be unprecedented, as will the level of information required to declare a product or company “Conflict Free”. As a continuation of Foresite’s popular regulatory briefing webinar series, we will be hosting an event on Tuesday, September 12, 2012, from 8:00-9:00AM PDT (11:00-12:00PM EDT, 4:00-5:00PM GMT). This Webinar will focus on the obligations, challenges, and responses leading companies will face when seeking to comply with the disclosure and due diligence requirements associated with sourcing and analyzing Conflict Minerals due diligence declarations from international supply chains.
