2017 Chain of Custody (CoC)

The CoC Standard aims to support claims for responsible sourced jewellery materials (known as CoC material), produced, processed and traded through the supply chain. The standard requires companies to have a policy and risk management frameworks for conflict sensitive sourcing practices, drawing on the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict Affected and High-Risk Areas. It also sets our requirements for confirming the eligibility of CoC materials and its segregation and transfer.
