Press Release:  Suzan Flamm, the senior counsel for the Jewelers Vigilance Committee (JVC),  will present the seminar, Dodd-Frank & Conflict Minerals: What it means for your gold and tungsten supply chains, on July 28 from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the JA New York summer show.

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform & Consumer Protection Act requires that publicly-held companies report to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on the origins of the gold and tungsten they use. To comply with the law, these companies are asking their suppliers detailed questions about the source of those minerals, and about the "due diligence" measures these suppliers take to ensure a responsible supply chain. Find out what Dodd-Frank requires, how it may impact your business and what steps you can take now to answer questions about the source of the gold and tungsten in the products that you sell.

We look forward to seeing you there!
