What is the connection between CFSI and OECD?

Download a PDF of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance (Third Edition, April 2016).

CFSI members worked closely with the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) on the development of Due Diligence Guidance for the Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas. More information about the OECD’s work on this area can be found on their website:  http://www.oecd.org/fr/daf/inv/mne/mining.htm

CFSI is a member of the OECD Forum’s Multi-Stakeholder Steering Group (MSG) established for the Guidance in 2013.

Cross-recognition agreements to support implementation of the OECD Guidance have been developed with related programs and initiatives, including the LBMA, and the Responsible Jewelry Council.

CFSI aims to support outreach and peer learning about the OECD Due Diligence Guidance across our membership. Click here to access CFSI’s eLearning Academy which contains training modules for suppliers, smelters, and auditors on supply chain due diligence and CFSP requirements.
