Wednesday July 23rd, D.C. District Courts raised the demand for industry leaders to enact the Dodd-Frank SEC 1502 Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act with no exceptions.  Plaintiffs who objected the ruling were denied any relief of the newly passed federal law and therefore are expected to swiftly comply by the first reporting deadline of May 31, 2014. The law legislates corporate social responsibility and human rights stipulations specifically for the Democratic Republic of the Congo and its countries. Supply chain commanders are presented with the complex challenge of filtering through their supply chains, beyond Tiers and directly into African mines, mitigating any source of Conflict Minerals. 

Michael Littenberg of Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP, provides comprehensive knowledge of the conflict minerals ruling and the action corporations must take for compliance. He will be speaking at the Global Conflict Minerals Symposium, a renowned event coinciding with the 1-year anniversary promulgation date of the Dodd-Frank Section 1502 Conflict Minerals Final Rule.  

The invitation-only event will provide senior corporate and compliance executives, key regulatory officials, academia and ethics officers, legal professionals, sustainability/CSR experts and industry leaders with a forum to share their practical experience, insights, and global vision relative to meeting the requirements of this unprecedented regulation.

The Global Conflict Minerals Symposium features speakers and participants from a diverse cross-section of stakeholders including: The United States Government Accountability Office, Parliament of Canada, Former US State Department, European Union, University of California, Private industry, As You Sow - and more.
