Jump to...

 
On April 22, 2015, two human rights non-governmental organizations, Amnesty International and Global Witness, published a report analyzing compliance by U.S. reporting companies with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s conflict minerals rules. The report, which reviewed the conflict minerals disclosures of 100 companies, provides helpful insights for identifying best practices for conflict minerals supply chain due diligence and reporting. For companies that are working towards preparing their conflict minerals disclosures for calendar year 2014, which must be filed by June 1, 2015, the report’s recommendations for improving conflict minerals compliance will undoubtedly be relevant.
