It has been a few months since the SEC passed its comprehensive set of “Conflict Minerals” rules, and in that time we have covered the topic at great length.
But the steps manufacturers must take to comply with the conflict minerals legislation in 2013 and beyond are only beginning to come into the light.
As Lisa Reisman noted on the day of the initial ruling, the rules will require “companies and their supply chains purchasing the group of metals called ‘Conflict Minerals’ (this group of metals includes: tantalum and columbite-tantalite or coltan, tin and cassiterite, tungsten and wolframite, gold and their derivatives) to file annual audited statements by May 1 of each year.”
In an effort to alleviate some of the stress felt by manufacturing organizations and others affected by the new legislation, Elm Consulting created a Conflict Minerals Legislative Guide that we would like to share with you, our readers.
Within the guide, you will not only find a general overview of the new rules, but also some advice on what to your company should do in the next 12 months.
