In July 2018 the CRAFT was launched: Code of Risk-mitigation for artisanal and small-scale mining engaging in Formal Trade. This is a global code, open source, aligned with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance and common framework for continuous improvement. For its development there was an Advisory Group and a Technical Committee with representatives of the gold supply chain and experts. For the first version, 400 people participated during the public consultation. For the year 2019, it is expected to begin the second round of consultation, after the application pilots.
