The International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI) announced today that PT Trans Continent’s MSM/TTN and NHM Supply Chain, Bakan Supply Chain, and Banyuwangi Supply Chain, all based in Indonesia, have been recertified in full compliance with the International Cyanide Management Code (Cyanide Code).
PT Trans Continent’s MSM/TTN and NHM Supply Chain was first certified in September 2011 and was recertified in December 2014 and in January 2018. PT Trans Continent’s Bakan Supply Chain and Banyuwangi Supply Chain were initially certified in January 2018. ICMI has received and accepted Detailed Audit Findings Reports and Summary Audit Reports prepared by independent professional third-party auditors who evaluated each of the three supply chains against ICMI’s Transportation Verification Protocol and found them in full compliance with the Cyanide Code’s Transport Principles and Standards of Practice. The Summary Audit Reports and Auditor Credentials Forms for each of the supply chains are available on PT Trans Continent’s Signatory Page on the Cyanide Code web site. The supply chains must be re-audited every three years to evaluate continuing compliance with the Cyanide Code.
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. 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.
