Assure customers, stakeholders and suppliers about your products and materials with a Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) Chain of Custody (COC) assessment from SGS.
Transparency and trust are essential in the jewelry industry.
As an RJC-approved audit company, our RJC COC assessment allows you to show the integrity of your products and materials, allowing you to tell the complete story of how they were sourced, traced and processed, from mine to retail.
Why choose an RJC audit from SGS?
RJC COC Certification is voluntary for RJC members, but achieving it is a major milestone in your sustainability journey. It demonstrates your commitment to responsible jewelry and trust in the supply chain. With over 15 years of experience in the jewelry sector, we can provide expertise in reviewing your COC activities.
Members must have a surveillance audit during their certification period to ensure ongoing compliance with the COC standard.
We can support you through every step of the certification pathway:
- Certification recommendation
- Surveillance audit
Upon completion of an audit from SGS, which follows the RJC COC standard, an official audit report and recommendation are submitted to the RJC. The RJC then issues a certificate, based on the outcome outlined in the audit report. This will reinforce your commitment to responsible business throughout your supply chain.
Certification outlines responsible business practices that can be communicated to suppliers, customers and other stakeholders.
