ITA-RMI Assessment Criteria for Tin Smelting Companies

The International Tin Association (ITA) and the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) share a common objective to encourage and promote responsible production, trade, and sourcing within the tin value chain. To this effect, ITA and RMI have developed a revised core audit requirement document, now known as the “Assessment Criteria for Tin Smelting Companies”.

Summary of Major Revisions

The new Assessment Criteria includes the following major revisions, from the 2017 Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP) Standard:

  • Focuses exclusively on the tin value chain
  • Re-structured to solely focus on the criteria for determining conformance with the RMAP assessments and audits under the ITA Code of Conduct
  • Closer alignment with the OECD 3T Supplement
  • Clarifies expectations relating to the OECD red-flag review
  • Includes requirements to meet EU Conflict Minerals Regulation
