It was developed under the aegis of the United Nations Environment Programme by a multi-stakeholder Steering Committee. The Cyanide Code is intended to complement an operation’s existing obligation to comply with the applicable laws and regulations of the political jurisdictions in which the operation is located.
“Intermarine is pleased to have one of the first stand-alone certifications for our industry,” said James Jackson, Vice President – Intermarine. “Our robust QHSE program along with that our terminal operations assured a successful audit.”
ICMI has been established to administer the Cyanide Code, promote its adoption, evaluate its implementation, and manage the certification process.
