Learn more about RJC Code of Practices and initiatives on Tuesday 2.

The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) is preparing to host a seminar entitled, Responsible Sourcing: How the new RJC Code of Practices and key industry initiatives support a responsible supply chain, at International Jewellery London on Tuesday 2 September.

The RJC team will be positioned at stand A92 at the Olympia event, giving members of the industry a chance to talk to representatives of the company face-to-face.


The seminar panel will consist of five industry insiders, including RJC training coordinator Maria Mursell; Goldlake Group senior sustainability advisor Assheton Stewart Carter; Estelle Levin of Estelle Levin Ltd; Coventry University professor Marylyn Carrigan and National Association of Goldsmiths chief executive officer Michael Rawlinson.

All five panellists will present on issues such as understanding human rights issues and provenance claims, the RJC’s role in the artisanal and small-scale mining sector and the latest research on best practices for small businesses in the UK.

RJC’s interim chief executive officer Catherine Sproule commented: “RJC is delighted to contribute to IJL’s seminar series with a topic that really concerns organisations of all size. We hope to reach as many UK businesses as possible on supply chain issues as we work towards building a responsible world-wide supply chain.”

The RJC provides an ethical trading platform between the jewellery industry’s sellers: gemstone traders and jewellery manufacturers, and its buyers; retailers and designer-makers.

The RJC Seminar will take place on Tuesday September 2 at 2:45pm in the Inspiration Theatre.
