Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) audits

RJC is the global membership and standards body for responsible jewellery throughout the entire supply chain – from mine to retail for the jewellery and watch industry.

Introduction of the service:  

The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) is the global membership and standards body for validating responsible jewellery practices throughout the entire supply chain – from mining to retail. RJC’s ‘Code of Practice’ references key development frameworks, including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, International Labour Organization (ILO) Principles, UN Global Compact and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

RJC’s standards enable organizations to integrate responsible business practices into their management systems and daily operations. There are two standards available to RJC members: RJC Code of Practices (CoP) and RJC Chain of Custody (CoC). Through the adherence of the Code of Practices, members contribute towards the United Nations 2030 agenda and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

How does it work: 

DNV has been accredited by RJC to audit its RJC Code of Practices (CoP) and RJC Chain of Custody (CoC) standards in accordance with Signet Responsible Sourcing Protocol (SRSP).

The CoP provides a common standard for ethical, social, human rights and environmental practices, while the CoC outlines an approach for businesses to  manage and trade gold, silver, and platinum group metals in a fully traceable and responsibly sourced manner.  

DNV provides both of these services, backed by a team of expert auditors and extensive industry knowledge. We currently offer RJC services in India, Sri Lanka, and the Middle east.

How DNV can help: 

DNV assists organizations in advancing their compliance journey by auditing them against the CoP and CoC standards. Through verification and adherence to these standards, aligned with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ILO Principles, UN Global Compact, Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs), and applicable local laws, organizations can take significant steps forwards.
