RMI Conference 2018

Public Consultation Process

 

We invite your feedback: Cobalt Refiner Standard

The China Chamber of Commerce of Metals, Minerals & Chemicals Importers & Exporters (CCCMC), the Responsible Cobalt Initiative (RCI) and the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) share a common objective to ensure the responsible production, trade and processing of cobalt. To this effect, CCCMC, the RCI and the RMI collaborate on the implementation of a cobalt refiner assurance process.

CCCMC, the RCI and the RMI are committed to engaging external stakeholders in the development and oversight of the assurance process. The three organizations collaborated to develop the CCCMC Draft Cobalt Refiner Standard.

This Standard will be used for a pilot assurance process for cobalt refiners. The pilot assurance process for cobalt refiners will be refined and updated throughout 2018, taking into account the result of the pilot and implementation of the pilot standard. The parties welcome your feedback throughout the pilot process, which can be provided by contacting the individuals listed below.

We currently invite your feedback: The consultation period for the draft Cobalt Refiner Standard is from 9th April to 9th May 2018. We invite stakeholders to submit any comments using the feedback form here.
