  • Recently, the Division of Corporation Finance of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") released unofficial guidance in a question and answer format (“FAQ Guidance”) providing responses to certain interpretive questions that have arisen in connection with Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Conflict Minerals Rule”). The FAQ Guidance marks the first guidance by the U.S. government with respect to the Conflict Minerals Rule since the SEC’s release in August 2012.
