RJC welcomes industry input for Code of Practice review

The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) has invited the industry to have its say on the body’s Code of Practice.

The Code of Practice is the standard which defines responsible ethical, human rights, social, and environmental practices for companies in the diamond, gold and/or platinum metals jewellery supply chain.

Certification against the Code of Practices is a mandatory part of RJC membership.

The body has released a Public Summary document which will be open to public comment until 8 September 2017.

The RJC said that it was “particularly seeking feedback on gaps and potential improvements” to the standard. It also stated that “any comments on the review process itself” were welcomed.

The review of the Code of Practices will involve a number of consultative webinars, workshops and public comment periods over the next 12 months.

Those who want to receive regular updates on these opportunities for input, should register their interest at consultation@responsiblejewellery.com
