PPA Engagement on the Regional Certification Manual Revision
Jul 13, 2018
The Regional Certification Manual (RCM), the framework by which Great Lakes states integrate and implement conflict minerals policies and practices, including principles of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance, is currently under review. As noted in our last member update, as part of the the 10th PPA Alignment Session at OECD in Paris, PPA Governance Committee members and invitees had the opportunity to hear a preview of work by the consultancy undertaking the RCM review, including initial ideas about revisions to bolster efficacy and sustainability of the RCM. The meeting and subsequent PPA Governance Committee and work group discussions also identified several opportunities for the PPA to further engage with the ICGLR and member states and other regional stakeholders. The meeting memo describing potential areas of PPA engagement is now available on the PPA website.
