  • 2. The regional certification is implemented in the legal framework of DRC through two ministerial decrees ( decree 057 and 058) – Mandatory mineral certification (CTC and RCM) for the 3TG in DRC – Implemented trough the Ministry of Mines and its agencies with BGR Cooperation since 2011 – ICGLR/DRC certificates to be issued by CEEC (the national certification agency) Initiative Régionale contre l'Exploitation Illégale des Ressources Naturelles
  • 3. Certification –DR Congo Milestones 2011-2013 In 2011: • Development of the certification System • Two manuals (3T&G) produced, and included in DRC legislation since june 2011 per Ministerial Decree • First Baseline audit completed in September (Nyabibwe Pilot mine site) Initiative Régionale contre l'Exploitation Illégale des Ressources Naturelles
  • 4. Certification - DRC Milestones 2012 • Harmonization and alignment with the RCM (Kigali Meeting) • RCM and OECD DD Guidance included in the DRC legislation trough ministerial decrees • 3rd Party Audits of Mine sites in Katanga, North-Kivu and South-Kivu Initiative Régionale contre l'Exploitation Illégale des Ressources Naturelles
  • 5. Certification - DRC Milestones 2013 • Compliance 3rd Party Audits for the Nyabibwe (South-Kivu) and Mai Baridi (Katanga) mine sites. The 2 Mine sites receive their CTC Compliance certificate • DRC launches the ICGLR/RDC Certificate (July 2013) • First DRC ICGLR DRC certificates to be issued by CEEC within the next weeks Initiative Régionale contre l'Exploitation Illégale des Ressources Naturelles
  • 6. Mine Inspection 1. Joint Mine qualification Missions • Under the lead of Monusco with the participation of Government, industry and Civil Society • Inspection of more than 80 Mine sites in Maniema , South and North-Kivu completed • Inspection of 25 mine sites in Katanga(11/2013) • Standards and criteria for Mine site Qualification in accordance to OECD/UN DD and the ICGLR RINR Initiative Régionale contre l'Exploitation Illégale des Ressources Naturelles
  • 7. Mine Inspection Mine sites Mine Inspection / National certification of mine sites in DRC Processor/ Exporter Statut: - Conflict free/no child labor and involvement of armed groups - Some violations, but not critical; 6 months for corrective actions - Critical violations ; exclusion from the chain of custody Initiative Régionale contre l'Exploitation Illégale des Ressources Naturelles
  • 8. Certification - DRC 2. Mine site Inspection Template • Template for DRC developped in 2013 and integrated in the legal framework through ministerial decree. Shall be used in 2014 3. Mapping 3 Maps of conflict minerals published by the Ministry of Mines with the support of BGR and Monusco until dec. 2012 Since 2013 Maping taken over by the IPISCAMI project Initiative Régionale contre l'Exploitation Illégale des Ressources Naturelles
  • 9. Alignment The national certification in DRC is fully harmonized with the RCM and OECD Guidance. Standards include the CTC criterias as ICGLR progress criterias Traceability on two pilot mine sites is according to the Itsci Scheme. In our pilot mine site in Bibatama ongoing pilot of Geotranceability - Mapping activities in coordination with IPIS-CAMI - Initiative Régionale contre l'Exploitation Illégale des Ressources Naturelles
  • 10. Implementation Challenges and lessons learned • Security in some places especially in North and South Kivu • Accessibility of mine sites especially in remote places • Expansion of qualification missions needed to include also the Pr. Orientale (Gold) and Katanga • Support of Monusco neede to secure access to mines Initiative Régionale contre l'Exploitation Illégale des Ressources Naturelles
  • 11. Recommandations • More financing and support from industry and donors is needed (joint qualification missions in DRC actually funded by MONUSCO, BGR and USAID) • Mapping and mine sites inventory funded by Promines (World Bank/DFID) and BGR • Regional Certification shall also address issues beyond conflicts (progress criteria) e.g. legalisation, formalisation, livelihood, etc Initiative Régionale contre l'Exploitation Illégale des Ressources Naturelles
