PPA Alignment Meetings

PPA objectives call for engagement and coordination of in-region stakeholders to identify gaps and solutions to advance the PPA’s goal of developing and improving conflict-free mineral supply chains in the Great Lakes Region (GLR) of Central Africa. PPA Participants have a mutual interest in advancing alignment of systems in support of conflict-free mineral supply chains from the GLR. As such, the PPA convenes bi-annual “Alignment Meetings” to encourage information-sharing, dialogue, and coordinated action by those implementing systems. For the purposes of these meetings, “alignment” refers to OECD due diligence guidance, the ICGLR Regional Certification Mechanism (RCM) framework and standards, relevant national laws (currently, those of Member States, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission regulation, and proposed European Union regulations), and market acceptance considerations (i.e., what systems need to achieve and document for minerals to be seen as acceptable by smelters and downstream companies).
