We have developed the Fairmined Standard for Gold and Associated Precious Metals to support sustainable development of Artisanal and Small-scale Mining (ASM) communities.
The standard includes requirements for Artisanal and Small-scale Mining Ortanizations (ASMOs) to perform responsible artisanal and small-scale mining: formal and legal mining operations, environmental protection, labor conditions, traceability of Fairmined minerals, and socio-economic development through the Fairmined Premium. It also outlines market models and requirements for market actors (Fairmined Operators).
The structure of Fairmined Standard v2.0:
- The Fairmined Standard (scope: ASMO’s and first authorized Fairmined buyer)
- Fairmined Market Annex (scope: Fairmined operators and licensees)
- Glossary of terms
