For each high-risk procurement transaction, iTSCi provides the following documents:

    1) Event summary report 2) Mine survey recommendations, including a list of mines with potential risks (it is recommended to carry out enhanced due diligence and risk assessment from companies purchasing from these mines) 3) National and regional monthly reports to review general on-site Situation 4) Data summary and other reports THXC will focus on learning other iTSCi reports and documents, such as accident reports, management evaluation reports, and company audit reports.
