Mines can now demonstrate their commitment to responsible resource extraction and meet the demands of manufacturers requiring increased due diligence on the mined inputs for their products. Regulators and consumers are asking more industries to deliver responsible products to the market, especially manufacturers of jewelry, electronics, building products, and automobiles. Leading mining companies can now prove to their buyers that they are meeting these demands through an internationally recognized independent verification program - IRMA.
