About this Event
The purpose of the summit is to brainstorm solutions to the common auditing challenges our organisations see across the standards that are either aligned to or working towards alignment to the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas. This summit intends to bring the standards and auditors together to articulate the challenges and workshop solutions. Beyond standard owners and auditors, the invitation is also being extended to organisations who have auditor oversight experience and relevant metal associations. There will also be an optional auditor training session on 03 February afternoon which is intended for auditors to learn from industry experts of the best practices when auditing for standards that incorporate the OECD Due Diligence Guidance in the mineral sector.Agenda:
