Forum on due diligence in the gold supply-chain


2-3 May 2012 - OECD Conference Centre, Paris


Supplements on supply chain due diligence for specific minerals form an integral part of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance on Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas


The Guidance now includes a Gold Supplement which was developed through an inclusive multi-stakeholder process and endorsed by the OECD-hosted working group on gold on 2 February 2012


This forum provided the first opportunity to introduce the finalised Gold Supplement and discuss how best to implement it to tackle the unique challenges for carrying out due diligence on gold. Participants also learned about industry programmes to implement responsible, conflict-sensitive due diligence in the gold supply chain supply.
