Chain of Custody 2017
Confidence from end-to-end
Transparency and trust go hand in hand in the jewellery and watch industry. RJC Chain of Custody certification gives your customers and suppliers the assurance they need about how your products and materials have been sourced, traced, and processed through the supply chain.
Our Chain of Custody certification provides you with a guarantee of the integrity of your products and materials – allowing you to tell the complete story about how they were sourced, traced and processed, from mine to retail. This certification is voluntary for RJC members.

To achieve Chain of Custody certification is a major milestone in your sustainability journey. It demonstrates your commitment to responsible jewellery and promotes trust in the watch and jewellery supply chain.
If required, some members may receive a mid-term review to assess your progress. This will be discussed with you during your audit report.
Step-by-step guide to achieving RJC Chain of Custody Standards certification.
Use the RJC Chain of Custody self-assessment tool to monitor your progress with compliance and get ready for your audit.
Your auditor will share their findings with you. Any non-conformances (NC) will be discussed and you will be required to develop a Corrective Action Plan (CAP).
Minor NC: 3 year certification awarded
Major NC: 1 year certification awarded
Schedule your re-certification audit with an RJC accredited auditor. Re-certification is required prior to the expiry of your current certification. Any delays will result in a gap in your certification period. You can apply for re-certification no more than four months prior to your expiry date.
