Preparing for Conflict Minerals Rule Compliance: Company Action Items Checklist

This Checklist suggests action items for companies preparing to comply with the diligence and disclosure requirements of the conflict minerals rule. It is a companion resource to Practice Note, Conflict Minerals Diligence, which includes a detailed discussion of the diligence and disclosure requirements of the conflict minerals rule, and a review of leading resources to assist companies in complying with those requirements.

IMPORTANT NOTE: On April 14, 2014, the Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit ruled on the legal challenge to the conflict minerals rule. For a discussion of the ruling and practical implications, see Legal Update, Conflict Minerals Challenge: DC Circuit Strikes Disclosure Provision and Upholds Rest of Rule. This resource is being updated, but has not yet been updated, to reflect this development.
