Conflict Minerals Regulation

In 2010, the US Congress passed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act which directs the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to issue rules requiring certain companies to publicly disclose their use of conflict minerals.

On August 22 2012, SEC voted in favour of a Final Conflict Minerals Regulation. The final rule requires publicly traded companies to annually disclose information on the source of conflict minerals contained within their product and whether any of these minerals originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country.

These minerals include tantalum, tin, gold and tungsten.

Under this final rule, companies are required to file a Conflict Minerals Report and are expected to exercise due diligence on the source of their conflict minerals.

Companies must disclose conflict minerals information on a calendar year basis, January 1 - December 31, and this information must be provided using a form called Form SD.
