The launch of the certification and auditing system follows the recent publication of version 2.0 of the Fairmined standard that includes some important changes to provide new opportunities for Artisanal and Small-scale miners globally and for the market. The Fairmined Standard for gold and associated precious metals was developed with ARM’s network for responsible mining and includes requirements for traceability, social development, conflict mitigation, economic development, environmental protection and labour conditions.
