This year work began on the Market Entry Standard, in order to provide more artisanal miners with access to legal supply chains. It is being developed through a robust participatory process aligned with ISEAL codes. The standard is designed to follow a due diligence approach, converting the risk mitigation that supplying ASM gold represents for the market into an opportunity for miners to work toward continuous improvement and for traders to be an active force in generating positive changes in mining communities.
