The International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI) announced today that U.S. cyanide consignor/transporter Cyanco has added its Hermosillo Distribution Center to its Cyanide Code certified Mexico Supply Chain.
Cyanco is a signatory to the Cyanide Code as both a cyanide producer and separately as a consigner/transporter. As a consigner/transporter, Cyanco organizes and manages supply chains comprised of companies it has contracted to transport cyanide. The Cyanco Mexico Supply Chain was pre-operationally certified in compliance with the Cyanide Code in May 2014, and certified in full compliance in July 2015. Cyanco also operates the Hermosillo Distribution Center and will use the facility as part of its cyanide transport operation.
As required under the Cyanide Code, the Hermosillo Distribution Center was audited against ICMI’s Cyanide Production Verification Protocol by independent professional third-party auditors. ICMI has received and accepted the auditors’ Detailed Audit Findings Report which found the Hermosillo Distribution Center in full compliance with the Cyanide Code’s Principles and Production Practices. The Summary Audit Report and Auditor Credentials Form are available on the company’s Signatory Company Page on the ICMI web site: http://cyanidecode.org/signatory-company/cyanco-corporation. The addition of the Distribution Center does not affect the duration of Cyanco’s Mexico Supply Chain existing certification.
The Cyanide Code is a voluntary industry program for companies involved in the production of gold 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.
