Chain of Custody Certified Members
The RJC Chain-of-Custody (CoC) Standard builds on and complements the RJC Code of Practices, and is voluntary for RJC Members. The CoC Standard provides requirements for the creation of a Chain-of-Custody for responsibly-sourced Precious Metals (gold, platinum, palladium and/or rhodium) produced, processed and traded through jewellery supply chains. Responsible sourcing encompasses responsible business practices generally (as outlined in the RJC Code of Practices or other recognised standard) as well as due diligence relating to conflict issues (as outlined in the OECD Due Diligence Guidance). The CoC Standard specifies requirements for a business to segregate CoC Material from other material in its custody, and to provide relevant information supporting the provenance of CoC Materials when transferred or sold to other parties.
The types of Eligible and/or CoC Materials are Gold and Platinum Group Metals (Platinum, Palladium and Rhodium) that are one of the following:
- Mined: produced under responsible mining practices, as defined by the RJC Code of Practices or a comparable standard recognised by the RJC, or by ASM on an Entity’s concession under an initiative supporting professionalisation and formalisation of ASM, or Mining Byproduct declared by a CoC Certified Refiner, and Conflict-Free as demonstrated by Due Diligence.
- Recycled: from Recyclable Materials sourced from suppliers screened according to Know Your Customer requirements to avoid Illegitimate Sources.
- Grandfathered: historical stocks with records that demonstrate they were produced before 1 January 2012.
- Mix of Mined, Recycled and/or Grandfathered: to accommodate bulk-commodity chain-of-custody models.
