The Chemours Company’s Mexico, Global Ocean, and US/Canada Rail & Barge Supply Chains Recertified Under International Cyanide Management Code

The International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI) announced today that The Chemours Company’s (Chemours) Mexico Supply Chain, Global Ocean Supply Chain, and U.S./Canada Rail & Barge Supply Chain 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. The three Chemours’ Supply Chains were first certified in 2010 and were recertified in 2014. ICMI has received and accepted Detailed Audit Findings Reports prepared by an independent professional third-party auditor who evaluated the three Chemours’ 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:–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
