The VALMIN Code is under review

The AusIMM VALMIN Committee has completed a review of the 2005 Code and has issued it for review to a short list of our colleagues who are active in this area of practice.  MICA is represented on the VALMIN Committee (Darren Herdman) though the MICA Board has had no involvement in the process to date, beyond that.

The new draft seems to have dropped all reference to MICA on the cover and in the preamble.  How has this come about?  We think it omits to acknowledge MICA’s key role in the original drafting of the Code’s first edition, and its subsequent promulgation and eventual adoption.

Do you have any thoughts or comments on this disservice to our members?

Comments on the new Code will be posted shortly seeking further response from the membership.
