2023 Forum on Responsible Mineral Supply Chains

RJC Chain of Custody Review Discussion Session

Apr 27, 2023 | 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

Partner session - Room CC16


Organised by: Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) In 2022, the RJC started the process of a major review of the RJC Chain of Custody (CoC) standard. The Chain-of-custody (CoC) standard is voluntary for all RJC members who handle gold, silver and platinum group metals (PGM). Chain-of-custody (CoC) certification complements certification against the RJC’s Code of Practices, which is mandatory for all RJC members and is aligned with the OECD Guidance. This standard defines an approach for companies to handle and trade gold, silver and platinum group metals in a way that is fully traceable and responsibly sourced. This discussion will be held in advance of the launch of the second round of public consultation, to discuss key feedback topics from round one. This will be an opportunity for stakeholders to openly comment, discuss and share feedback on the proposed changes to the CoC. Topics to be discussed will include, but not be limited to, the definition of recycled, inclusion of investment materials, guidance on blockchain, transfer documents, and more. Public consultation has a critical role in ensuring RJC standards remain robust, relevant, and fit-for-purpose.
