ICMM is looking to make life administratively easier for miners and stakeholders
The International Council on Mining & Metals has been working with the many other owners of mining standards globally to establish equivalencies and reach an understanding on points of divergence, to clear up the 'standards landscape' for miners and end users, according to ICMM chief operating officer, Aidan Davy.
He said once agreement had been reached, the ICMM would make that information public in cooperation with those other standard bearers.
"The aim is first and foremost to increase transparency but then, secondly, it is to avoid the administrative burden for member companies and downstream customers participating in those other recognised third-party validated systems so we get to a position of cross-recognition, where practicable," Davy said.
