Squire Patton Boggs has produced 2 separate articles on the subject of the Conflicts Mineral Regulation. It says that, in less than 7 months, the EU conflict minerals regulation will take full effect, and importers into the EU of certain threshold amounts of tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold (3TG) and of metals containing 3TG will be subject to it. The second article asks what steps should a company take to develop its initial conflict minerals compliance programme? It also asks what steps should a company take to expand its existing compliance programme to fulfil the requirements of the EU Regulation? It recommends that businesses should consider some best practices in building its own compliance programme.
