The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) adopted section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Conflict Minerals Regulations”) in August of 2012. This mandate requires that companies publicly disclose their use of certain minerals (tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold) that originate from conflict mines in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries. The purpose of this act is to hinder or discourage humanitarian abuses against women and minors working these mines that either directly or indirectly fund the armed militias of that region. This act promotes social responsibility for publicly owned companies.
