RMI Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP) Tungsten Standard

The Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) is a membership organisation that encourages the responsible sourcing of minerals globally.

RMAP is a programme curated by the RMI that assesses smelters of tin, tungsten and tantalum, and refiners of gold and cobalt.

The RMAP standards are developed to meet the requirements of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, and related requirements of Regulation 2017/821 of the European Parliament and Section 1502 of the U.S. Dodd Frank Act.

RMAP focuses on "pinch points” in the supply chain (points with relatively few actors), and uses independent third-party assessment of management systems and sourcing practices, with a risk-based approach, to validate conformance.

RMI Global Responsible Sourcing Due Diligence Standard for Mineral Supply Chains  

The Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) is a membership organisation that encourages the responsible sourcing of minerals globally.

The RMI Global Responsible Sourcing Due Diligence Standard for Mineral Supply Chains works alongside other RMI standards for specific minerals. It follows the same approach as other RMI standards, of establishing auditable frameworks for adherence to the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, designed to combat conflict financing and human rights abuses in mineral supply chains.

Companies with facilities classed as processors, integrated processing and mining operations, independent mining operations, upstream traders and/or exporters are eligible to use the Standard. The Standard is not available to artisanal and small scale miners.
