Managing the Requirements of the SEC Conflict Minerals Rules

The prospect of the United States Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) Conflict Minerals Law has generated significant anticipation and anxiety over the last few years. However, the lack of final rules has caused serious confusion and frustration to those companies who have struggled to forecast and adopt sound business processes for effectively documenting and demonstrating compliance. The SEC’s affirmative vote to adopt the final rules on August 22, 2012, has removed the uncertainty and set a deadline for declaring whether publically traded companies can state that they are “Conflict Free”. The associated Conflict Minerals Reports, due diligence obligations, and data sourcing requirement will require significant commitments from a corporation’s finance, legal, IT, sourcing, manufacturing and product stewardship departments. Moreover, the financial filing and auditing requirements will undoubtedly place significant pressure on corporate officers to pay great attention to these new legal requirements. Foresite is pleased to invite you to attend a complementary Webinar on this legislation on Thursday, September 6, 2012 from 8:00-9:00AM PDT (11:00-12:00PM EDT, 4:00-5:00PM GMT) This program will include: Analysis of the dominant rules associated with SEC Conflict Minerals Compliance, A Discussion of the obligations affecting major corporations, and A Demonstration of Foresite’s pioneering Conflict Minerals Compliance Tools. The Webinar will be presented by Travis Miller, Managing Consultant and Graham Margetson, Director, Sales and Marketing for Foresite Systems, Ltd. As recognized experts in environmental regulatory compliance and the associated business processes, they have advised many of the largest companies in developing sound defensible regulatory compliance processes.
