This conference aims to promote the adoption of a common reporting standard for minerals in the EU and will thus provide a unique opportunity to learn about and discuss concrete steps regarding mineral reporting in a cross‐disciplinary environment, including EU policy makers, national government officials, academics, minerals company executives, finance and industry experts.

The programme will cover the following broad themes in 6 sessions:

  1. Introduction to the RMI and progress so far.
  2. Minerals supply chains and variability of information sources, public data and reporting requirements across the EU.
  3. National economic policies, governance structures and the EU minerals knowledge database.
  4. Stock exchanges, commodity markets, and financial systems, and their need for reliable and consistent minerals data.
  5. The PERC reporting standard, CRIRSCO, and the UNFC classification.
  6. “Best Practice”, ethics and the role of skilled geoscientists.

A one‐day PERC training course in minerals reporting using PERC standard (Wednesday, 19th November) is to be offered in conjunction with the conference.
