Voluntary Withdrawals by Four Transport Signatories from Cyanide Code Program

The International Cyanide Management Institute announced today that four transport signatories: C Logistics Solutions, SRL, (Dominican Republic), CUSA S.A.C., (Peru), Kuldipsingh Equipment N.V., (Suriname) and PT Bollore Logistics Indonesia, (Indonesia) have voluntarily withdrawn as signatories to the International Cyanide Management Code (Cyanide Code). The withdrawals are effective this date.

C Logistics Solutions, SRL was certified in full compliance under the Cyanide Code in 2014, and in 2018. CUSA S.A.C. was certified in full compliance under the Cyanide Code in 2014, 2016 and in 2018. PT Bollore Logistics Indonesia was certified in full compliance under the Cyanide Code in 2013. Kuldipsingh Equipment N.V. had not yet been certified.

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 atwww.cyanidecode.org.
