IPC Conflict Minerals Workshop


The May 31, 2014, U.S. Securities and Exchange (SEC) deadline for filing conflict minerals reports required by Section 1502 of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act is rapidly approaching.

IPC has been actively engaged in the conflict minerals issue for several years and has joined forces with well-known consulting firm TetraTech to bring a conflict minerals workshop designed specifically for you. Whether you’re filing a disclosure form or conflict minerals report with the SEC or gathering data needed by your customers you will benefit by attending this intensive, one-day workshop.

Provisions in Section 1502 of Dodd-Frank requires regulated companies to report on the origin of tin, tantalum, gold, and tungsten — conflict minerals — in their products. To learn about the origins of these minerals in their products, your customers will turn to you for data and information. Regardless of whether the regulation directly applies to your company, you will have to provide information on the presence of conflict minerals in your products to your customers.

Who Should Attend

  • Executives will gain a strategic overview enabling them to minimize the costly and disruptive impact of conflict minerals on their companies’ operations.
  • Environmental, corporate social responsibility and other compliance managers will gain important insights into the strategies and tools needed to implement effective and efficient conflict minerals programs.
  • Legal personnel will gain an understanding of conflict minerals requirements needed to design an effective legal strategy which could include contract requirements.
  • Purchasing managers will learn how to effectively serve on the front line of implementing supply chain strategies.
