About ICMI

The Institute

The International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI) was established for the purpose of administering the "International Cyanide Management Code For The Manufacture, Transport and Use of Cyanide in the Production of Gold", and to develop and provide information on responsible cyanide management practices and other factors related to cyanide use in the gold and silver mining industries.

ICMI's primary responsibilities are to administer the International Cyanide Management Code, promote the Cyanide Code's adoption and implementation, evaluate its implementation, manage the certification process and to make information on the safe management practices for cyanide widely available.
