What is the revision about?
ARM and RESOLVE developed CRAFT through a widely participative process that involved stakeholders from all parts of the supply chain; international civil society, intergovernmental organizations, independent experts, and more.
Two governance groups were established with the aim to advise and guide the elaboration of this ASM tool: an Advisory group and a Technical Committee. Additional input was solicited through a global, public stakeholder consultation process involving over 400 individuals from the industry, mining communities, civil society, and governments from over 18 countries spanning 6 continents.
Addressing all comments and incorporating suggested improvements, the CRAFT Code was published on July 31st, 2018.
Now, it is important to improve the CRAFT Code and to adjust it to the real necessities that have been perceived during its implementation.
Why a second consultation is needed?
- ISEAL recommends two rounds of consultation: to follow these recommendations for setting the best practices in support of CRAFT’s credibility and legitimacy as a tool.
- To expand the scope of CRAFT in order to maximize its usefulness in the artisanal and small-scale mining. The increase in the demand of risk-free minerals is a rising tendency.
- To enable progressive improvement and integrate lessons learned from implementing version.
