The International Cyanide Management Institute announced today that Sedres Maritime Company Ltd., a cyanide transporter based in Saudi Arabia, has voluntarily withdrawn as a signatory to the International Cyanide Management Code (Cyanide Code). Sedres Maritime Company Ltd. was pre-operationally certified under the Cyanide in March 2017. The withdrawal is effective this date.
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.
