The Responsible Jewellery Council released its third discussion paper on Chain-of-Custody Certification for public comment June 24.
The public comment period is open for all stakeholders until Aug. 22.
The new RJC CoC Certification would be a separate standard that would cover responsibly sourced diamond, gold, and platinum metals.
The latest draft of the RJC CoC Standard in the third discussion papers has been revised to more directly address the proposed rules for implementation of the “conflict mineral” provision of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
