The operational impacts of Covid-19 are leading to postponements of some RMAP assessments across metals. We are remaining in regular communication with participating companies and actively working with all facilities to accommodate requests for rescheduling. Assessments will be scheduled at the earliest possible date with consideration given to maintaining public safety.
Tungsten smelters that are participating in the RMAP by agreeing to complete a RMAP conformance audit conducted by an independent third party auditor. RMAP Active Tungsten Smelters are identified as Active in the RMAP once they submit a signed Agreement for the Exchange of Confidential Information (AECI) and Auditee Agreement contracts. If a smelter or refiner that has been identified as Active is deemed by the RMI Senior Program Manager to not be progressing toward an audit, gap closure or re-audit for more than 90 days, that smelter or refiner will be removed from the Active list. A company that is unresponsive for 45 days will be removed from the Active list.
