The Survival Guide to a Conflict Minerals Audit
December 31, 2013 marked the end of the first reporting period for the SEC’s Section 1502 Conflict Minerals Disclosure Rule and the beginning of reporting and auditing concerns.
The rule requires publicly-held companies to disclose whether their products contain conflict minerals as defined by the law: tin, tantalum, tungsten or gold (3TG) originating from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and specific adjoining countries.
The first report, covering calendar year 2013, is due to the SEC by May 31, 2014. The SEC and Government Accountability Office estimate that approximately 6,000 issuers and 280,000 non-issuer companies will be directly or indirectly impacted by the rule.
