The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) has added supply-chain certification for silver to its chain-of-custody standard.

The certification, which is voluntary, allows those in the trade to offer verification that their materials are responsibly sourced. The RJC has previously only certified gold and platinum.

“Our standard offers a tool for member companies to provide third-party-certified traceability for silver, and reliable evidence of the source of material used,” David Bouffard, RJC chairman and vice president of corporate affairs for Signet Jewelers, said last week. “We believe this new addition will open doors for existing and new members to become certified against the chain-of-custody standard.”

The RJC first established its chain-of-custody standard in 2012, revising it in 2017 to align it with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Since the standard was launched, the group has issued about 150 certifications.
