LPPM Responsible Sourcing Governance
The Management Committee (MC) and the Responsible Sourcing Review Committee (RSRC) oversee the policy development and implementation of the Responsible Sourcing programme, in particular the complaints mechanism and incident handling procedure.
The LPPM’s independent consultants are responsible for the day to day running of the programme and form part of the Responsible Sourcing Review Committee. The RSRC reports to the Management Committee on all matters relating to the management, governance and development of the Responsible Sourcing programme. Non-conformances are escalated by the independent consultants to the RSRC for review and action. The MC is notified of any action taken by the RSRC.

Audits to be received by the RSRC within 3 months of the refiner’s financial year end.
Audit reports can be viewed in the Platinum and Palladium Good Delivery Lists
Incident Review Process
The Incident Review Process is invoked in response to a particular stimulus of a reputational nature. Information can come from a variety of sources (trade associations, law enforcement agencies, market intelligence, etc.) and the LPPM will seek corroboration wherever possible as part of the process. Due to the sensitivities involved, the LPPM may keep the process confidential until the issue has been resolved.
Refiners can raise concerns about the process directly with LPPM. Complaints must be made in writing and be accompanied by supporting evidence. The Responsible Sourcing Review Committee (RSRC) will review the details of the complaint and the outcome will be formally communicated to all interested parties.
Failure to meet the standards required could have serious implications for LPPM Good Delivery refiners. Sanctions could include suspension subject to resolution or being transferred to the Former List with immediate effect.
It is vital that refiners develop and publicise a mechanism allowing any employee or external stakeholder to anonymously voice concerns about the Platinum and Palladium supply chain activities of a refinery or any newly identified risk.
Similarly, anyone else involved in the Platinum and Palladium supply chains is encouraged to contact the LPPM at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with all legitimae concerns they may have.
