Fairmined Standard-Requirements for ASMO

Certificate Description

The Fairmined Standard is an assurance that Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining Organization (ASMO) comply with the requirements of the Fairmined Standard developed by the Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM).

The overall objective of this standard is to promote the progressive organization and formalization of the Small-Scale Mining (ASM) sector, bringing with it improved labor rights, safer working conditions for miners, and strengthened miners’ organizations with the capacity to campaign for legislation and public policies that promote their rights and enable a responsible ASM sector.

The ARM was established in 2004 and is a leading global expert on Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining (ASM). They work to transform the ASM sector into a socially and environmentally responsible activity, while improving the quality of life of artisanal miners, their families and communities.
