The Copper Mark is Open for Applications

Starting March 30, Copper Producers can apply for The Copper Mark.

This represents a significant milestone in the development of the Copper Mark and its assurance framework. Interested Copper Producers can simply visit the Copper Mark website to start the application process.

Once the application is received, the Copper Mark will reach out to the applicant with further information, including the Letter of Commitment, to begin the Copper Mark Assurance Process.

The Copper Mark’s priority is the health and safety of our colleagues, industry members, stakeholders, and the general public. The Copper Mark Assurance Process begins with a desktop-based self-assessment and independent review. At this time, no on-site assessments are being organized, and all applicants are encouraged to follow relevant authorities regarding future travel advisories.
