A press release from the European Parliament is linked below. The draft legislation on conflict minerals, including mandatory due diligence checks for importers, was voted through the Parliament on March 16, 2017:

This “conflict minerals” law will oblige all but the smallest EU importers of tin, tungsten, tantalum, gold to do "due diligence" checks on their suppliers, and big manufacturers (EU firms with over 500 employees) will also have to disclose how they plan to monitor their sources to comply with the rules.
