Iron Ore Standards Committe

Amira Global’s P1214 project seeks to provide financial support to Standards Australia, enabling them to fulfill the International Secretariat role for ISO TC 102/SC2 Iron Ore and Direct Reduced Iron – Chemical Analysis. Additionally, the project assists Standards Australia’s national mirror committee, MN-002 Iron Ore and Direct Reduced Iron, in their endeavors. By supporting these committees, P1214 aims to ensure that iron ore standards remain up to date, scientifically rigorous, and aligned with global best practices.

The project brings together expert partners, including Standards Australia, BHP, Rio Tinto, FLSmidth, Fortescue Metals Group and Roy Hill, to support the development and enhancement of iron ore standards. The project aims to ensure the safety, consistency, and reliability of iron ore products, services, and systems through voluntary standards at National and International levels.

Maintaining high-quality standards in the iron ore industry is vital to ensure operational efficiency, product reliability, and safety. By establishing robust guidelines for chemical analysis, Standards Australia and the P1214 project contribute to the accuracy and consistency of ore characterization. These standards provide a foundation for reliable decision-making, quality control, and effective communication between stakeholders across the supply chain.

Collaboration lies at the heart of the P1214 project, as industry expert leaders join forces to drive the development and implementation of iron ore standards. With BHP, Rio Tinto, FLSmidth, Fortescue Metals Group, and Roy Hill actively participating in the initiative, the project benefits from a diverse range of expertise and perspectives. Through this collaboration, the project aims to address challenges, share knowledge, and foster innovation within the iron ore industry.

This collaborative effort highlights the commitment of all involved parties to drive innovation, promote best practices, and ultimately contribute to the growth and sustainability of the iron ore sector.
