ARM established an alliance with Fairtrade Foundation UK, aligning the standards produced by each institution. In March 2010, the Fairtrade and Fairmined Standard was published for Artisanal and Small-Scale Mined Gold and Associated Silver and Platinum. The same year, the audit and certification body FLOCERT conducted a gap analysis of the ASMOs participating in pilot testing in Latin America. In 2013 ARM’s collaboration with Fairtrade concluded, and both organizations continued their separate work with artisanal miners.
