Highlights from the IPC’s October conference on conflict minerals in Brussels:

  • The proposed regulation will be delayed until February or March 2014. After the regulation is final, it will be forwarded to the Development and Trade Committees in the EU Parliament. Action is not expected until Fall of 2014.
  • The covered minerals (tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold) have not changed but other minerals could be added
  • The regulation is intended to have global scope, unliike Dodd-Frank in the U.S.
