Alignment assessment of industry initiatives with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Mineral Supply Chains

 

The OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas is being used as the basis and benchmark by many industry initiatives. To gauge the alignment, coherence and credibility of these initiatives, the OECD is carrying out an assessment of the alignment of industry programmes’ standards and implementation efforts with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance.


Assessment

The initiatives being assessed during the 2016/2017 pilot phase are:

Conflict Free Smelter Initiative (CFSI) 
ITRI Tin Supply Chain Initiative (iTSCi) 
London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) 
Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) 
Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) 

 

Kumi Consulting has been appointed to support this assessment on behalf of the OECD.
