SEC “CONFLICT MINERALS” TALK 

On August 22, 2012, the SEC issued a Final Rule requiring supply chain tracking and reporting of the origins of tin, gold, tantalum, and tungsten, including when present in finished goods incorporating these materials.  Such “conflict minerals” originate from conflict-ridden countries in Central Africa, the mines of which are often controlled by militia groups using violence, forced child labor, and rape in connection with the extraction of these minerals.

 An origin review must be part of a manufacturer’s (or contractor’s) SEC report when a conflict mineral is necessary to the functionality or production of any of their goods.  The information must also be available on the company’s internet site.
