RJC Code of Practices and Chain of Custody

GeSI and "Conformant Smelter List"

The Responsible Jewellery Council is an international not-for-profit standards and certification organisation. It has more than 1.250 member companies across more than 70 countries that span the jewellery supply chain from mine to retail. RJC members commit to and are independently audited against the RJC Code of Practices – an international standard on responsible business practices for diamonds, gold and platinum group metals. The Code of Practices addresses human rights, labour rights, environ-mental impact, mining practices, product disclosure and many more important topics in the jewellery supply chain.

RJC works with multi-stakeholder initiatives on responsible sourcing and supply chain due diligence. The RJC’s Chain-of-Custody Certification for precious metals supports these initiatives and can be used as a tool to deliver broader member and stakeholder benefit.

Ögussa is certified against both RJC standards. The RJC is a Full Member of the ISEAL Alliance – the global association for sustainability standards. For more information on RJC Members, Certification and Standards please visit www.responsiblejewellery.com

The RJC Chain-of-Custody certification is cross-recognized by the GeSI (Global Enabling Sustainability Initiative). Ögussa is listed as "Conflict-free Gold Refiner" according to the RMI Responsible Minerals Initiative.

Compliance officer for RJC COP, RJC COC and Fairmined is Mag. Marcus Fasching (mail to: marcus.fasching@oegussa.at).
