Joint NGO Statement: EU Conflict Minerals Regulation Failing to Reach Its Goals


More than six years after it was signed into law, the EU Regulation on the responsible supply of tin, tungsten, tantalum and gold (3TG) originating from conflict-affected and high-risk areas (CAHRAs) is failing to reach its key objectives: breaking the link between mineral exploitation and conflict financing and addressing human rights abuses in the supply chains. As part of the co-signatories of this statement, EurAc calls on the European Union and its Member States to take steps to better enforce the existing Regulation and to adopt new measures to improve supply chain transparency while increasing direct support for responsible sourcing in producing countries.
