 Many companies are discovering that conflict minerals disclosure is driven not just by the SEC's reporting deadline, but also by market pressures that are forcing even quicker action. First reports are due to be filed with the SEC May 31, 2014, and the covered reporting period is in effect now. While some businesses may be delaying their efforts in the hope that a pending legal challenge to the SEC rule will be successful, savvy businesses are already realizing that market forces may be an even stronger incentive to move ahead on auditing their supply chains and developing competitive strategies depending on the results.
