Relating RJC’s Code of Practices to OECD Due Diligence Guidance

Client: Responsible Jewellery Council

Collaboration: N/A


The Responsible Jewellery Council is a not-for-profit, standards setting and certification organisation. It has more than 1,000 Member companies that span the jewellery supply chain from mine to retail.

The Responsible Jewellery Council (RLC) recognised the need to help its members understand how its Code of Practices and Chain of Custody Standard enable conformance with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance. The RJC reached out to Levin Sources help develop and deliver webinars for upstream and downstream audiences so that their members might better understand how compliance with the RJC CoP and CoC supports and exceed conformance with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance, and what additional measures may be necessary.

We designed a webinar that educated the audience on the issues, benchmarked the different initiatives, and explained in detail the links between the RJC tools and the OECD Due Diligence Guidance. These webinars were delivered to more than 100 RJC members across the mineral supply chain.

Levin Sources helped the RJC build confidence amongst their members and put forward a clear explanation and path to conformance with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance. Recordings of these webinars continue to serve as an educational resource for RJC’s membership.
