Freight Forwarders Kenya, Freight Forwarders Tanzania, and Golden Coach Limited Recertified Under International Cyanide Management Code

The International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI) announced today that Freight Forwarders Kenya's Supply Chain, Freight Forwarders Tanzania's Supply Chain, and the transporter Golden Coach Limited have been recertified in full compliance with the International Cyanide Management Code (Cyanide Code).

The Freight Forwarders Kenya and Freight Forwarders Tanzania Supply Chains initially were certified in compliance with the Cyanide Code in May 2008, and were recertified in September 2011 and again in May 2015. Golden Coach initially was certified in compliance with the Cyanide Code in April 2015. As required under the Cyanide Code, these operations were again audited against ICMI's Verification Protocol within three-years of their previous certifications by independent professional third-party auditors. ICMI has received and accepted the auditors’ Detailed Audit Findings Reports which found that these operations had maintained full compliance with the Cyanide Code's Principles and Transport Practices throughout the previous three years. The Summary Audit Reports and Auditor Credentials Forms are available on the ICMI web site at http://cyanidecode.org/signatory-company/freight-forwarders-kenya-limited for Freight Forwarders Kenya, at http://cyanidecode.org/signatory-company/freight-forwarders-tanzania-limited for Freight Forwarders Tanzania, and at https://www.cyanidecode.org/signatory-company-categories/golden-coach-limited-tanzania for Golden Coach. The operations must be re-audited every three years to evaluate continuing compliance with the Cyanide Code.

The Cyanide Code is a voluntary industry program for companies involved in the production of gold and/or silver using cyanide and companies producing and transporting this cyanide. It was developed under the aegis of the United Nations Environment Programme by a multi-stakeholder Steering Committee. The Cyanide Code is intended to complement an operation's existing obligation to comply with the applicable laws and regulations of the political jurisdictions in which the operation is located.

ICMI has been established to administer the Cyanide Code, promote its adoption, evaluate its implementation, and manage the certification process. A detailed list of the operations covered by signatory companies' applications, along with the full text of the Cyanide Code and its implementing and administrative documents, are available at www.cyanidecode.org.
