The Dodd-Frank Act is a US law passed by Congress in 2010 which authorizes the SEC to issue rules requiring certain companies to disclose their use of conflict minerals (tin, tungsten, tantalum or gold) if those minerals are "necessary to the functionality or production of a product" manufactured by those companies. The final rule of the Dodd-Frank Act is applicable to a company using tantalum, tin, tungsten, or gold if: the company files reports with the SEC under the Exchange Act; the minerals are "necessary to the functionality or production" of a product manufactured or contracted to be manufactured by the company.
