On August 22, 2012, two years after the passage of the conflict minerals reporting legislation as part of the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is set to finalize the rules that will define how companies report on the use of tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold in their products. This law has already had far-reaching implications for the way companies think about their supply chains, as well as an impact on the ground in Central Africa.

Format

The webinar will involve a teleconference accompanied by a real-time, internet-based presentation using WebEx. Telephone and login instructions will be sent after registration.
