CRIRSCO and Reporting Code

 

CRIRSCO - the Combined Reserves International Reporting Standards Committee - is the international committee which coordinates the activities of the national reporting committees including PERC, JORC (Australasia), SAMREC (S.Africa), CIM (Canada), IMEC (Chile), and SME (USA).

 

Pan-European Reserves and Resources Reporting Committee (PERC) - now manages the Reporting Code. PERC was set up in 2006 as a sub-committee of the IOM3 Applied Earth Science Division, but PERC's membership has now been broadened to represent a cross section of the minerals industry and to include other relevant professional bodies in the UK and Europe.
