The Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act enacted in July of 2010 requires U.S. and foreign companies listed on the U.S. Stock Exchange to report the use of conflict minerals that are used to produce tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold and any other minerals named by the State Department to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
