ARM formed the network Respomin, an abbreviation of «responsible mining». It convened Latin American artisan leaders, artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) experts, NGOs, academics, public officials, representatives of international organizations, precious metal traders, refiners, and jewelers to create an innovative approach for formalizing and transforming ASM and its value chain. That same year, ARM formed a technical committee to develop Standard Zero.
