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.

Joint Ore Reserves Committee (JORC)The Australasian Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves (the ‘JORC Code’ or ‘the Code’) sets out minimum standards, recommendations and guidelines for Public Reporting in Australasia of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves.

The SAMCODES, the South African Mineral Reporting Codes, set out the minimum standards, recommendations and guidelines for the Public Reporting of mineral related issues in South Africa. They currently comprise three Codes, two Guideline documents and an affiliated National Standard.

The Canadian National Instrument 43-101 is a national instrument for the Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects within Canada.
