Publication of Cyanide Code Program Documents in Spanish, French, and Chinese

The International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI) announced today the publication of Cyanide Code program documents in Spanish, French, and Chinese.  The Cyanide Code is supported by a suite of documents that provide guidance and instructions to participating operations in preparing for certification and to auditors in assessing compliance. These documents also provide information, instruction, and details on administrative requirements for participating companies and auditors.  These Cyanide Code program documents were updated in June 2021. Translated versions of the updated Cyanide Code program documents may now be accessed on the Languages page of the Cyanide Code website.

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.  he 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.

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 We invite you to read our 2020 Annual Report.
