How TSM Works

First established by the Mining Association of Canada in 2004, TSM was the first mining standard in the world to require site-level reporting with external verification. The program is mandatory for all companies that are members of implementing associations.

Each year, mine sites use TSM to report on 8 protocols with 30 indicators of social and environmental performance. Qualified external verifiers review and confirm these results every three years.

An independent, multi-interest advisory body oversees all aspects of the TSM program. Interested individuals and groups can also comment on draft TSM policies and protocols during public comment periods.
