Signatory Certification Agreement

1. An operation is certified in full compliance with the cyanide code when ICMI receives a certification audit report and accepts it as complete, with the primary auditor finding that it is fully compliant with code principles and standards (or, if applicable, production or transportation practices). A transaction also does not comply with the cyanide code if it is not reviewed before the current certification date or if it is not fully implemented of a corrective action plan (CAP) before the current date. An operation does not correspond to the cyanide code and therefore cannot be certified if the primary examiner finds, during a Cyanide code certification audit, that one or more standards of practice, production practices or transportation practices are not met. In order for an operation that has been determined to be non-compliant to continue on the path to certification, the senior auditor must have a CAP containing all findings of non-compliance with the transmission of other audit documents to ICMI. Once ICMI has accepted the CAP as complete, it will be published at the same time as the summary audit report and the examiners` registration information for public review. As noted below, the specific certification requirements vary depending on the time elapsed from the date the legal auditor`s compliance audit came into effect, i.e. .dem date the ICMI announces the certification of the transaction and publishes its summary audit report on the Cyanide Code website. 1.dem ICMI submits a revised signature application to identify the amendment; C. An operation in which the site inspection portion of a certification audit is not completed before the current date does not comply with the cyanide code and therefore can only be certified when it submits a full audit report to ICMI indicating substantial or complete compliance. 1. Notification of a significant cyanide incident in one of the signatory`s activities within the scope of the cyanide code and contained in Part II of its signature application must be provided within 24 hours of the date and nature of the incident, as well as the name and contact information of a company representative, in order to respond to requests for further information.

3. Within 90 days of the end of the site inspection portion of the audit, send a certification audit report consisting of a detailed audit report, a summary audit report, an examiner information form and a letter from a delegated representative of the undersigned entity authorizing ICMI to publish the summary audit report on the cyanide code website. G. A signatory shipper/carrier that adds or changes individual carriers, ports or other elements of a certified supply chain must: f. If certification of an operation requires a re-examination, the submission of internal compliance audit reports is no longer required within one year of the submission of the new audit report. A. Corrective Action Plan (CAP): a plan to address deficiencies identified during a certification review that allowed the examiner to establish a significant match or non-compliance. A CAP designed to correct substantial compliance with substantial compliance must be fully implemented within one year of the date the summary audit report of the transaction is published by ICMI on the cyanide code website. There is no deadline for the implementation of a CAP that has been designed to correct the finding of non-compliance.
