Members of the Levin Sources team will be in attendence at the OECD 12th Forum on Responsible Mineral Supply Chains and the OECD-World Bank Event on Artisanal and Small-scale Mining in Paris, April 17 - 20. There, we are hosting ICGLR RCM Revision Side-Sessions to solicit stakeholder feedback. Details follow.
Levin Sources and Responsible Trade are presenting the methodology for the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR) Regional Certification Mechanism (RCM) revision process and soliciting feedback from participants on the initial proposed revisions. We are specifically looking for inputs from civil society, government, and private sector stakeholders.
These sessions precede the official consultation period that is taking place from mid-May onwards and will permit the Levin Sources and Responsible Trade consultancy team to sense check and, where appropriate, modify version 1 of the revised manual. We will be considering, amongst other things:
- The roles and responsibilities in due diligence and compliance under the RCM
- Opportunities to enhance the efficiency and credibility of the RCM
- Self-financing of the RCM
- Other barriers impacting RCM implementation
There will be three RCM revision 'information sessions' for the aforementioned stakeholder groups. The sessions will be broken down as follows:
Wednesday 18 April 2018
Civil Society stakeholders: 13h30 - 15h00
Government stakeholders: 15h00 - 16h30
Private Sector stakeholders: 16h30 - 18h00
Room E, Château de la Muette, OECD
No need to pre-register - just arrive to the appropriate session on the day. We look forward to seeing you.
