2013 Conflict minerals preparedness survey

Welcome to PwC's 2013 Conflict minerals preparedness survey

The SEC's conflict minerals rule is effective for calendar year 2013. While SEC registrants will be directly impacted by the rule, many non-public companies will feel the impact of its requirements because of their presence in a public company's supply chain.

Although the rule is currently being challenged in court, no decision is likely to be reached before mid-2013. Companies that wait for the court's decision will have little time to comply with the rule should it withstand the legal challenge.

To understand how companies are addressing the rule, we would like to gauge a broad range of constituents' views on their preparations. We will share survey results during a webcast on April 9, 2013, as well as in a separate publication, so you can gauge how your company benchmarks against others of your size and in your industry. Please register for the webcast on our conflict minerals website, at www.pwc.com/us/conflictminerals.

Thank you for participating. The survey includes 30 questions, and should take 10-15 minutes to complete. Should you have any questions or need assistance, please contact PwC Survey Center at pwc.survey.center@us.pwc.com.
