CRAFT code (Code of Risk-mitigation for ASM engaging in Formal Trade)


CRAFT is an open-source code created under the Creative Commons CC BY-SA 4.0 license. It utilizes the OECD Due Diligence Guidance Annex 2 risks as an essential starting point, and also assesses several other important environmental and social risks in artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM), such as mine safety and use of mercury. It facilitates the comprehension, application and commitment to due diligence by all stakeholders in artisanal supply chains. Independent audits by third parties are still the responsibility of mineral buyers.
