Responsible Jewellery Council to review its Code of Practices

Companies who join RJC operate in an array of sectors, from mining to retail, and in a wide range of geographies. Any business in the gold, diamond or platinum group metals supply chain is allowed to join and seek certification against RJC’s COP.

At least three public comment periods will be held regarding the COP’s review, the first of which is open until 10 September 2012.

The COP, published in 2009, is to be reviewed for the first time. Issues and comments regarding the original publication have been logged and used to help the RJC to identify key topics to review.

RJC is inviting input from all interested stakeholders and has published a paper that outlines the process, scope and timelines for the COP review.

A summary of the COP review can be found at: www.responsiblejewellery.com/files/Public-Summary-for-RJC-COP-Review-260612.pdf
