Responsible Jewellery Council

RJC Members commit to and are independently audited against the RJC Code of Practices – an international standard on responsible business practices for diamonds, gold and platinum group metals. The Code of Practices addresses human rights, labour rights, environmental impact, mining practices, product disclosure and many more important topics in the jewellery supply chain.

RJC also works with multi-stakeholder initiatives on responsible sourcing and supply chain due diligence. The RJC’s Chain-of-Custody Certification for precious metals supports these initiatives and can be used as a tool to deliver broader Member and stakeholder benefit.

Please explore the RJC website to discover more about our standards and certification programs, RJC Members, and Auditors, and how you might become involved with or benefit from our work.

Code of Practices Certification:

RJC Code of Practices Certification provides members evidence of their responsible business practices. These can be communicated to suppliers, customers and other stakeholders through the use of the RJC certified member logo, RJC Certificate itself, the members’ webpage with their certification details, and being on the RJC Certified member list.

Certification against the RJC Code of Practices is compulsory for all RJC Commercial members within two years of joining RJC. Each RJC member’s Certification status can be found via the members’ unique webpage (search the members’ name on our website to find it).
