Goings-On / B9
RAPU RAPU MINING Inc. has earned its ISO 14001:2004 certification after passing the final audit of its environmental management systems ( EMS ).
Last year, RRMI's sister company, Rapu Rapu Processing Inc., secured its own ISO 14001:2004 certification for its EMS .
Carlos G. Dominguez, chair of the Rapu Rapu Group., said: "Environmental protection and safety is and will always be our first priority. That we have certifications for both mining and processing shows our commitment to responsible mining."
The certification credits RRMI's mining operations, tailings dam construction and management, and support services at its mine site in Rapu Rapu, Albay.
Certification International UK Ltd., an Independent International ISO certification body, also subjects the mining firm to a semi-annual surveillance audit.
