Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) response to ‘More Substance than Shine’ Report.

A recent report by Earthworks, IndustriALL, United Steelworkers, CFMEU and Mining Watch Canada, raises concerns about the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) Certification programs. In response, the RJC made the following statements:

  • The RJC Standards Committee is a multi-stakeholder body, that includes civil society representatives with policy and implementation experience in human rights, development, labour  and environmental issues.
  • RJC is a full member of the ISEAL Alliance, a global association for sustainability standards, and RJC is a member of the OECD Multi-Stakeholder Steering Group for the Due Diligence Guidance.
  • RJC certifies companies, rather than individual facilities to encourage broader uptake of the RJC Code of Practices across all relevant facilities.
  • The RJC Code of Practices, launched in 2009, is currently undergoing its first review which includes proposed new standards, aligned with international standards wherever possible, for mercury, Free Prior Informed Consent, sourcing from conflict-affected areas, and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
  • The RJC Chain-of-Custody standard is recognised by the OECD as an important industry initiative that helps to promote uptake and implementation of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance.
  • The RJC carries out accreditation of independent third party auditors based on published criteria, aligned with ISO standards on auditor quality and competence (ISO 17021). An independent expert in auditor accreditation is involved in the review process for each audit firm, to ensure impartiality and correct procedures are followed. The accreditation process is supported by training on the RJC’s standards and certification process.
