Input was sought on all portions of the draft IRMA Standard for Responsible Mining (v.2.0). The IRMA Steering Committee was particularly interested, however, in receiving input on a set of issues for which there is either a difference in opinion between stakeholder perspectives, or the topics are ones that remain challenging for the broader world community.
We marked these types of challenges with a pink flag. You can search in the Standard document for these flags by using the search term flag, or look for the pink flags in Chapters 2.1, 2.9, 2.12, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.7, 3.9, 3.10 and 4.2. Additionally, there were four other general topics on which IRMA sought input. Information on these topics can be found here, or in the downloadable version of the draft Standard under "Flagged Items."
