The International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI) announced today that The Chemours Company’s (Chemours) Argentina and Chile Supply Chains have been recertified in full compliance with the International Cyanide Management Code (Cyanide Code).
Chemours is a signatory to the Cyanide Code as both a cyanide producer and separately as a consignor/transporter. As a consignor/transporter, Chemours organizes and manages supply chains comprised of companies it has contracted to transport cyanide. Chemours’ Argentina Supply Chain was initially certified in January 2011 and recertified in February 2014, while the Chile Supply Chain was initially certified in July 2010 and recertified in January 2014. ICMI has received and accepted Detailed Audit Findings Reports prepared by an independent professional third-party auditor who evaluated Chemours’ Argentina and Chile Supply Chains against ICMI’s Transportation Verification Protocol and found them in full compliance with the Cyanide Code’s Principles and Transport Practices. The Summary Audit Reports and Auditor Credentials Forms are available on Chemours’ Signatory Companies Page on the Cyanide Code web site: http://cyanidecode.org/signatory-company/ei-duPont-de-Nemours–company-us. The operations 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 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.
