Washington, D.C., Oct. 14, 2011 — The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced the agenda and panelists for a public roundtable on the agency’s required rulemaking under Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which relates to reporting requirements regarding conflict minerals originating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and adjoining countries.
The October 18 roundtable, announced last month, will feature two panels discussing key issues related to the SEC’s required rulemaking, including what is covered by the rule, what steps will be required to comply with the rule, and reporting under the rule.
