Starting in 2013, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is requiring all reporting companies to disclose whether they utilize conflict minerals--gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten--in their products. The SEC’s new rule poses particular challenges for apparel producers and retailers, who don’t directly control the acquisition of their inputs that may include conflict minerals.
As part of USA-ITA’s continuing efforts to help member companies comply with the SEC’s reporting requirements, Dynda Thomas and David Spooner of Squire Sanders presented two webinars (11/08/12 and 03/05/13) on the SEC’s conflict minerals rule. Our webinar will provide member companies with a refresher on the rule, with a focus on the particular challenges facing the retail and apparel industry, and convey how other industries are moving to comply with the rule’s reporting requirements.
NOTE: This webinar package includes materials from the 11/08/12 webinar as well as the 03/05/13 webinar.
