Annual Site Certification Fee:

Note that this fee will be charged directly to the sites by ResponsibleSteel.

  • 1,000 USD: Upstream sites, i.e. those engaged in raw materials beneficiation such as pelletisation, coking and sintering
  • 5,000 USD: Iron and steelmaking sites, i.e. those engaged primarily in iron and/or steel making, from either primary or secondary sources

The site certification fee will be waived for the first year of certification, meaning fees will only be charged after one year of certification.
