TSM VSP Terms of Reference (2021)

The Mining Association of Canada (MAC) has established a process of external verification to ensure that MAC Members’ reporting on Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) performance indicators is consistent, accurate and transparent. These Terms of Reference for Verifiers have been developed to ensure that:

  • MAC Members follow a clear and consistent process for hiring Verifiers.
  • Verifiers meet minimum standards and conform to defined procedures to perform an external verification that can be relied upon by MAC Members and their Communities of Interest (COI).

Additional guidance to support Verifiers in adhering to these Terms of Reference for Verifiers is available in the TSM Verification Guide on the MAC website.
