"...The Drafting Committee presented a second draft of the supplement at the following meeting of the working group on gold on 18 November 2011. The supplement was then opened for final comments from the working group, and to the general public through an online consultation held from 5 December 2011 until 13 January 2012.
The Drafting Committee revised the draft supplement through a consensus-driven process, bearing in mind all comments received. On 2 February 2012, the working group unanimously endorsed the supplement, marking an important first step towards creating supply chains of gold that support peace and security in conflict-affected and high-risk areas.
The Supplement on Gold is now being considered for final approval by the OECD Investment and Development Assistance Committees.
