Conflict minerals regulations require companies that use covered minerals – tin, tungsten, tantalum, gold and their ores and alloys – to report on the source of those minerals and the due diligence conducted to verify the source.
Conflict minerals regulations were enacted in response to ongoing armed conflicts in regions that produce minerals used in the production of consumer products.
The purpose of the regulations is to prevent armed groups from funding their operations through the sale of minerals. Under these regulations, importers of conflict minerals must carry out due diligence on their supply chain, checking where the minerals and metals they import have been mined and processed responsibly.
