The Copper Mark provides an efficient system to independently verify responsible production of copper that is recognized as credible by key stakeholders.
The following documents are used by copper producers and assessors participating in the Copper Mark Assurance Framework:
- The Copper Mark Criteria defined by the Responsible Minerals Initiative's Risk Readiness Assessment
- The Copper Mark Criteria Guide (CHI / ESP)
- Copper Mark Assurance Process (CHI / ESP)
- The Copper Mark Claims Guide (CHI / ESP)
Additional documents will be developed and added to this list.
RECOGNITION AND EQUIVALENCE
The Copper Mark Assurance Process recognizes existing standards systems, reporting frameworks, certifications or externally assured management in order to avoid redundancy and to promote the use of these initiatives. The criteria, process and timelines applied by the Copper Mark to recognize existing Systems are defined in the Copper Mark Recognition Process.
The Copper Mark recognizes the following Systems in whole or in part as equivalent:
Copper Producers may submit a request to the Copper Mark for an equivalence review of a standard or certification that is not yet included in the RRA-Copper Mark Equivalency Matrix.
The information on recognition by the Copper Mark or of the Copper Mark by existing Systems will be updated on a regular basis.
