SEC Postpones Rules on African Conflict Minerals Until August

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission said it has postponed until at least August the adoption of new rules governing the trade in so-called “conflict minerals” from Central Africa.

The rules, which were originally expected this month, will require U.S. companies to disclose whether certain minerals used in their products could have supported conflict in Democratic Republic of Congo, according to a draft of the rules on the SEC website.
