Assurance and list of references

Assurance

Our vision is to conduct our business with integrity, honesty and fairness at all times. We build from a foundation of compliance with relevant laws, regulations and international standards, and are in line with various Rössing Uranium guidelines on leading business practices.

Much of our work is subjected to various, external-assurance and verification processes throughout the year. For example, external auditors audit our financial statements, while an external, environmental-auditing company audits our environmental figures each year. The following auditing companies, Government bodies and other institutions reviewed the company’s practices in 2018:

  • PricewaterhouseCoopers (external audit)
  • Deloitte Namibia (analytical review, Tip Offs Anonymous);
  • Bureau Veritas (ISO 14001:2004 certification and Rössing Uranium HSEQ management system business conformance);
  • International Atomic Energy Agency (industry control);
  • AECOM and KnightPiesold (third party review of Tailings Storage Facility stability and design);
  • Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare: Affirmative Action (Employment) Act, 1998 (No. 29 of 1998) (compliance verification in respect of labour-related Acts);
  • Ministry of Health and Social Services (compliance verification in respect of health and related Acts);
  • Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry (compliance verification in respect of effluent management and water-related Acts);
  • Ministry of Mines and Energy (compliance verification in respect of mining operation-related Acts); and
  • Ministry of Finance (compliance verification in respect of income tax and finance-related Acts).
