On April 29, 2014, Keith Higgins, the director of the Division of Corporation Finance for the US Securities and Exchange Commission (the Division), issued a statement confirming that “the Division expects companies to file any reports required under Rule 13p-1 on or before” June 2, 2014. The statement was issued in response to a recent court decision holding certain portions of the conflict minerals rules to be unconstitutional. On May 2, 2014, the SEC formally issued a stay of the effective date for compliance with the portions of the rule that the court found to be unconstitutional.
