Conflict Minerals Disclosure Rule: SECäó»s Actions and Stakeholder-Developed Initiatives
Michael J. Courts (au)
In eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), armed groups continue to commit severe human rights abuses and profit from exploitation of minerals and other trades. In 2010, Congress included a provision in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act to address the trade of conflict minerals äóî tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold -- which requires the Securities and Exchange Comm. (SEC) to issue a disclosure rule for companies using these minerals in their products. The act also requires an assessment of the ruleäó»s effectiveness and the rate of sexual violence in war-torn areas of DRC and neighboring countries. Since a rule has not been issued, this report examines (1) steps SEC has taken toward issuing a conflict minerals disclosure rule; and (2) stakeholder-developed initiatives that may help covered companies comply with the anticipated rule. This report also examines (3) any additional information available on the rate of sexual violence in eastern DRC and neighboring countries since a 2011 report on that subject. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
