Almost 9 months into the first year of compliance, where does your company stand? Do you have a clear path forward to your first conflict minerals filing deadline? Now that the DC District Court has rejected a lawsuit brought against the SEC’s conflict minerals rule, companies should be pressing forward to meet the May 31, 2014 filing requirement. But based on a survey we conducted just a few months ago, many companies were in the early stages of complying with the rule, and are uncertain as to next steps.

On this webcast, we share our perspective on:

  • Latest developments (including the legal challenge)
  • Considerations as you close out your first year of compliance
  • What to expect in the independent private sector audit – and how to prepare
  • Examples of how leading companies are addressing their compliance efforts

For additional information, we have a number of resources on our conflict minerals website, including the survey mentioned above, FAQs, publications providing background and best practices, and replays of previous webcasts where we addressed more operational aspects of a compliance program (e.g., reasonable country of origin inquiry, supply chain due diligence, and the role of technology).
