RMI Downstream Assessment Program Virtual Training

September 17, 2021

Please join the RMI for a FREE training focused on the RMI’s Downstream Assessment Program (DAP).   This virtual training will provide an overview of DAP, standard requirements and assessment process. Scope of DAP Standard is global and it covers all minerals.

DAP helps companies operating downstream of smelters and refiners, such as manufacturers, downstream processors and traders, etc., to meet customer requirements, providing companies with a validation of OECD DDG conformant sourcing practices and CMRT verification, as well as supporting company compliance, for example those in-scope for the EU Minerals Regulation can meet regulatory requirements for EU mineral importers by undergoing the RMI assessment.

RMI’s DAP is designed to meet these needs while minimizing audit fatigue and increase the universe of conformant downstream auditees.

This training is limited to specific groups:

  • Approved RMI auditor
  • RMI Member
