LBMA has published a mid-year update to outline the progress made on its 'Five Key Strategic Focus Areas' and provides an update on the audits for 2020.

These five key areas – value chain accountability, advancing standards, transparency, audit programme, and Artisanal and Small-scale Mining – underpin the priorities for the programme over the next three years and are key to building long-term trust and credibility in the industry globally.

Central to LBMA’s strategy is engaging with stakeholders, and this year will continue to see a focus on several initiatives which require close collaboration with various actors in the supply chain, as well as with other industry programmes.
