The International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI) announced today that CyPlus Idesa’s Transloading Terminal and Warehouse Facility, located in Obregon, Mexico, and the company’s Mexican Supply Chain have been recertified in full compliance under the International Cyanide Management Code (Cyanide Code). CyPlus Idesa is a signatory to the Cyanide Code as both a cyanide producer and separately as a consigner/transporter.
CyPlus Idesa’s Transloading Terminal and Warehouse Facility was initially certified in full compliance under the Cyanide Code in January 2013 and recertified in March 2016 and in September 2019. CyPlus Idesa’s Mexican Supply Chain was initially certified in full compliance under the Cyanide Code in January 2013 and was recertified in May 2016 and in September 2019. As required under the Cyanide Code, each operation was again audited within three years of its previous certification by an independent professional third-party auditor. ICMI has received and accepted the auditors’ Detailed Audit Findings Reports, which found that the Transloading Terminal and Warehouse Facility and the Mexican Supply Chain had maintained full compliance with the Cyanide Code’s Principles and Practices since their previous audits.
The Summary Audit Reports and Auditor Credentials Form are available on CyPlus Idesa’s Producer Signatory Page and CyPlus Idesa’s Transporter Signatory Page on the Cyanide Code website. Each operation must be re-audited every three years to evaluate continuing compliance with the Cyanide Code.
The Cyanide Code is a voluntary industry program for companies involved in the production of gold and/or silver using cyanide and companies producing and transporting this cyanide. It was developed under the aegis of the United Nations Environment Programme by a multi-stakeholder Steering Committee. The Cyanide Code is intended to complement an operation’s existing obligation to comply with the applicable laws and regulations of the political jurisdictions 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. 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.
