Dodd–Frank Section 1502 defines the affected countries or “Covered Countries” as follows: Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Central Africa Republic, South Sudan, Zambia, Angola, The Republic of the Congo, Tanzania, Burundi, Rwanda and Uganda.
CSRware is aligned with the SEC issue rule on Conflict Minerals pursuant to Dodd-Frank Section 1502, culminating in initial reporting due in 2014. Section 1502 deals with the use of four specific metals– tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold (3TG) – which are used in a wide range of consumer products across numerous industries. The purpose of the rule is to eliminate sourcing of these minerals from countries with genocidal practices.
Estimates suggest that 50% of all SEC issuers are impacted by this new rule. Also, a large number of privately held companies within issuers’ supply chains will be affected. Issuers’ will need to survey their supply chain to ensure compliance.
It’s amazing how pervasive conflict minerals are in our daily lives. Companies need to avoid sourcing from impacted areas while offering the same level of product value at a reasonable price. It can be done, but it requires attention.
