CyPlus Idesa’s Transloading Terminal and Supply Chain in Mexico Recertified Under International Cyanide Management Code

The International Cyanide Management Institute (ICMI) announced today that CyPlus Idesa’s Transloading and Warehouse Facility, located in Mexico, and Mexican Supply Chain have been recertified in compliance with the International Cyanide Management Code (Cyanide Code).

CyPlus Idesa’s Transloading Terminal and Warehouse facility in Obregon, Mexico initially was certified in January 2013 and was recertified in March 2016, when under the control of CyPlus GmbH. CyPlus Idesa’s Mexican Supply Chain initially was certified in compliance with the Cyanide Code in January 2013 and again in May 2016, when under the management of CyPlus GmbH. 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 CyPlus Idesa’s Transloading Terminal and Warehouse and Mexican Supply Chain had maintained full compliance with the Cyanide Code's Principles and Standards of Practices throughout the previous three years. The Summary Audit Reports and Auditor Credentials Forms are available on CyPlus Idesa’s Transport Signatory Page on the Cyanide Code web site: https://www.cyanidecode.org/signatory-company-categories/cyplus-idesa-sapi-de-cv-mexico-0 and on CyPlus Idesa’s Production Signatory Page: https://www.cyanidecode.org/signatory-company-categories/cyplus-idesa-sapi-de-cv-mexico. 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 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.  We invite you to read our 2018 Annual Report, which can viewed here.
