EU intends to address conflict minerals

The EU is considering introducing legislation on conflict minerals, possibly on the basis of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance (for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from conflict-affected and high-risk Areas), and inspired by the US Dodd-Frank Act. A co-ordination meeting between the various EU Commission services responsible for this topic is planned for late May and a working document will be issued at a later stage.  AIM-PROGRESS members will be kept updated.
