Combating Conflict Minerals: Developments in EU Trade Policy


EU Del PNG image

Please join us for a briefing by Director Signe Ratso of the European Commission's Directorate General for Trade on recently-adopted EU conflict minerals legislation, followed by a discussion with representatives from the private sector and NGO community.

In May 2017, the European Union passed a new Conflict Minerals law (Regulation in EU-speak). It aims to stem the trade in four minerals - tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold - when they are used to finance armed conflict or are mined using forced labour. The Regulation requires EU companies in the supply chain to ensure they import tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold from responsible sources only.

DG Ratso will discuss the new Regulation; Rick Goss of the Information Technology Industry Council and Sasha Lezhnev of the Enough Project will offer reactions and thoughts.  Question and answer session to follow.
