PUBLIC COMMENTS (22 October-22 December 2012):
Draft Specifications for Application of the United Nations Framework Classification for Fossil Energy and Mineral Reserves and Resources 2009 (UNFC-2009) and Draft Explanatory Report
Specifications for Application of UNFC-2009 – Draft Reports prepared by the Specifications Task Force Phase Two of the Expert Group, Third Session, 2-4 May 2012
- Specifications for the application of UNFC-2009 (UNFC-2009) (EGRC-3/2012/INF.1)
- Basis for establishing specifications for the application of UNFC-2009 (UNFC-2009) (EGRC-3/2012/INF.2)
Please note: These two draft documents were prepared by the Specifications Task Force Phase Two as the “basis for discussion” at the third session of the Expert Group on Resource Classification (Geneva, 2-4 May 2012). The documents were made available subject to the caveat that the draft text related to a few key issues is still under discussion within the Specifications Task Force Phase Two and certain commodity-specific specifications are still under consideration by the Committee for Mineral Reserves International Reporting Standards (CRIRSCO) which may have an impact on the relevant generic specifications as noted herein. Further, parts of the document are still incomplete and consequently no formal approval can be given or implied at this stage. If the members of the Expert Group concur, the Bureau of the Expert Group will release the completed draft document for a formal public comment period only when it has achieved a consensus on the form and content of the document. Subsequent to the public comment period, all changes will require a further consensus to be achieved in the Bureau prior to publication of the final version.
