Pega Conflict Minerals Compliance
In recent years, there has been an increasing international focus on conflict minerals from mining operations in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries. In response to these concerns, the United States Congress enacted legislation that requires public companies to provide disclosures about the use of specified conflict minerals coming from the DRC and nine adjoining countries. Section 1502 of the Dodd–Frank Act is intended to make transparent the financial interests that support armed groups in the DRC area. By requiring companies using conflict minerals in their products to disclose the source of such minerals, the law aims to dissuade companies from continuing to engage in trade that supports regional conflicts.
