CODE OF PRACTICES: Responsible Jewellery Council

February 3, 2009

Responsible Jewellery Council
20-22 Bedford Row, London, WC1R 4JS
United Kingdom

The Code of Practices of the Responsible Jewellery Council defines responsible ethical, social, human rights, and environmental practices for businesses in the diamond and gold jewellery supply chain. The Code of Practices was formally adopted by the RJC board on September 14, 2006.

The Code of Practices is intended as a base code that is applicable to all businesses that are Members of the Council throughout the entire supply chain, from mine to retail. Additional modules for specific sectors of the supply chain, such as mining, will be developed in coming months.

The Code of Practices builds on the RJC's Principles, promulgated in May 2006. Together, the Principles and Code of Practices will constitute the foundations for the RJC's Responsible Practices Framework and monitoring system.

The RJC implemented its system allowing for the independent third-party monitoring of Members' performance in January 2008.
