Update: Webinars supporting the public consultation announced

As part of the consultation process, we will be hosting a series of Webinars that will mirror the structure of our in-country consultations covering: an overview of the Global Tailings Review and the content of the draft Standard.  We will then turn to you for your questions and comments which will be facilitated via the Chat function on the Zoom Webinar service. Each session will be approximately 1.5 hours.

The primary mechanism for engagement is, as ever, our online consultation portal which will remain open until 31 December, and we welcome your input in this manner.

Please find attached the schedule for the webinars and the relevant link through which you can register and connect to the Zoom Webinar service.

Please note that we have tried to cater for all time zones but we appreciate some of these times will be outside normal working hours.  We will therefore record all webinars and upload to our website  thereafter.

All webinars will discuss the full draft Standard, however will be hosted by different Expert Panel members with different areas of expertise depending on the focus area of the respective webinar.
