Tulane University Launches Conflict Minerals Burden Survey

As a follow up to its October 2011 study, “A Critical Analysis of the SEC and NAM Economic Impact Models and the Proposal of a Third Model in View of the Implementation of Section 1502 of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act,”  Tulane University has launched a survey  to begin measuring the actual burdens of conflict minerals legislation experienced by affected companies.

IPC is encouraging its members to participate in Tulane’s  “Survey of Corporate Efforts and Resources Utilized to Comply with Dodd-Frank Section 1502,”  as results of the study will help IPC’s advocacy efforts  in pursuing conflict minerals burden reductions such as de-minimis and other exemptions.

The survey (questionnaire and research protocol, etc.) is located at: http://www.payson.tulane.edu/dfs1502-survey-corporate-efforts.
The required password is: DFS1502.

The October 2011 Tulane University economic analysis assessed the costs of implementing the Dodd-Frank conflict minerals regulation to be $7.93 billion — more than one hundred times greater than the estimate prepared by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of $71.2 million.
