Have you waited to take action on Conflict Minerals? The time is now.

cmalertWe’ve been talking about the impact of Dodd-Frank Section 1502 – the “Conflict Minerals Provision” – for over a year, but we know that many companies have delayed taking action.  While the first filing date is coming up in May 2014, legal challenges have prompted many to hold off on moving forward.

Those legal challenges have had their day in court, and last week the US District Court for the District of Columbia upheld the SEC’s rule for the implementation of the provisions.  In other words, the time for moving forward on Conflict Minerals compliance is now.

Read more in our RGP Financial Alert – or read the ruling directly from the Court.  And then contact us so that we can put you in touch with the RGP thought leaders and experts to help you move forward.  With the combination of our methodology, experienced consultants and policyIQ technology, RGP offers a full solution to get you compliant within the short time remaining before the filing deadline.
