Code of Practices Review

We are now reviewing our Code of Practices (COP), the standard against which all RJC members must be certified. This is anticipated to run until December 2018.

This is the second review of the COP which was last updated in 2013. Stakeholder input is a crucial part of the review and we invite all interested parties to provide feedback. There will be at least two rounds of formal public consultation, starting with Comment Period 1 (see below) that will run for 60 days. Workshops, webinars and specific topic related sessions will also be held throughout the review.

If you are a RJC member, or stakeholder on our ‘interested parties’ list, you will be informed of public comment periods on the COP review by email. To receive more regular updates on opportunities for input, register your interest at:

Comment Period 1 – Review of Scope – July 2017 to August 2017

The comment period is to invite input from all interested parties on the proposed process, scope and timelines for the review of the COP standard. This is outlined in the Public Summary document which can be downloaded here.
