A large number of companies will be affected by the Conflict Minerals provision, because these minerals — commonly referred to as 3TG, for tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold — are used in a wide range of industries, including electronics and communications, aerospace and automotive, jewelry, health care devices and diversified industrial manufacturing.
Private companies may also be affected if they are part of the supply chains of the companies affected by the reporting requirements.
