The International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI) announced today that two CyPlus GmbH (CyPlus) supply chains, Supply Chain #5 and Supply Chain #10, both for transport of cyanide to Turkey, have been recertified in full compliance under the International Cyanide Management Code (Cyanide Code). CyPlus is a signatory to the Cyanide Code as a consigner/transporter and as a cyanide producer. As a consigner/transporter CyPlus organizes and manages supply chains comprised of companies it has contracted to transport cyanide.
This is the initial certification for Supply Chain #10. Supply Chain #5 was initially certified in full compliance under the Cyanide Code in September 2012, and was recertified in September 2015 and in November 2018. Both supply chains were audited against ICMI’s Transportation Verification Protocol by an independent professional third-party auditor who found both supply chains in full compliance with the Cyanide Code’s Transport Principles and Standards of Practice. The Summary Audit Reports and Auditor Credentials Forms for both supply chains are available on CyPlus’ Transporter Signatory Page on the Cyanide Code website. The supply chains must be re-audited every three years to evaluate continuing compliance with the Cyanide Code.
The Cyanide Code is a voluntary industry program focused on the safe and environmentally responsible management of cyanide by companies producing gold and/or silver and by companies manufacturing, warehousing, and transporting cyanide. The Cyanide Code was developed under the aegis of the United Nations Environment Programme by a multi-stakeholder Steering Committee and is amongst the most established certification programs in the mining sector. The Cyanide Code is intended to complement an operation’s existing obligation to comply with the applicable laws and regulations of the political jurisdiction in which the operation is located.
ICMI has been established to administer the Cyanide Code, promote its adoption, evaluate its implementation, and manage the certification process for operations using, producing, and transporting cyanide. A detailed list of the operations covered by signatory companies’ applications, along with the full text of the Cyanide Code and its implementing and administrative documents, are available at www.cyanidecode.org.
