Responsible Raw Materials Initiative

As a mining company in the DRC, Rwanda, Uganda or Burundi, where can I go for assistance to make sure my material will be accepted by the CFSI?

The CFSI currently recognizes two different organizations that can support artisanal and small scale mining (ASM) and entities exporting ASM material in the African Great Lakes region.  They are iTSCi and the Better Sourcing Program (BSP).  Both entities assist in management of due diligence and chain of custody activities.  Please visit their websites for additional information.

For large scale mining (LSM) entities, contact the CFSI to work with them on establishing an acceptable CoC program that will conform to OECD requirements.
