Conflict Mineral Compliance

Conflict Mineral Compliance is the ongoing set of disclosures required by certain companies and manufacturers utilizing tin, tungsten, tantalum, or gold as a necessary component of their product, as stipulated by the final rule of the Dodd-Frank Act. Although consumer electronics companies are primarily affected by Conflict Minerals Compliance regulations, conflict minerals are used in a wide spectrum of end-products. Outside the legal implications of non-compliance, a company may face pressure from human rights activists, non-governmental organizations, consumers or other market forces to prove they are in fact conflict free. Thus, conflict minerals non-compliance can be a tremendous brand risk to an organization. (See: Dodd-Frank Act; Conflict Minerals)
