Guidance on developing sound security management plans to implement international security standards and the Voluntary Principles

Room 803
On 02 March 2017, the Mining Association of Canada announced a membership commitment to implement the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights (VPs).

Several MAC members already formally participate in the VPs on Security and Human Rights Initiative (VPI), and others apply the VPs at their operations abroad. MAC member companies that rely upon private or public security forces are being asked to commit to implementing a human rights and security approach consistent with the VPs and based on a determination of risk at mining facilities.

The announcement coincided with the annual plenary meeting of the VPI, which held that same week in Ottawa. Since then, Government Affairs Canada has launched initiatives to support VP’s implementation internationally.

Created in 2000, the VPs are standards to help extractive sector companies balance the obligation to respect human rights while protecting the assets and people at their operations. The Government of Canada has identified the VPs as one of six leading standards in Canada’s CSR Strategy for the Extractive Sector.

Implementation and application of the VPSHR’s require an enterprise to conduct Threat and Risk Assessments, develop minimum department standards for proprietary and contract security, and carefully consider their relationship with, and support for, public security. To accomplish this, a well-considered security management plan following industry best practices is required.

A security management plan outlines the organization’s security goals, strategies, programs, and processes. It is used to guide the security department’s direction and operations in a manner consistent with the company’s overall business mission and commitment to international standards.

This presentation will guide security professionals and those assigned security oversights for mining companies on developing sound security management plans that provide a basis upon which to implement international security standards and the VP’s.
