Signet Support and Supplier Training
The complexity and challenges of the global diamond and jewelry supply chain require solutions that are larger than any one company can drive. Signet engages and collaborates with a wide spectrum of suppliers, industry associations, civil society and governments to further harmonize industry standards, tackle industry-wide challenges and develop common solution sets.
Signet is a proud founding and certified Member of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), the world’s leading standard-setting organization for the entire jewelry and watch industry, with over 1,700 members globally.
Aligned with Signet's dedication to the continuous improvement in the integrity of global jewelry supply chain, Signet has made RJC membership and certification a requirement for all suppliers.
Signet’s primary audit assurance is through the supplier’s Responsible Jewellery Council certification audit against CoP 2019, which now must include the Signet supplier’s latest SRSP Report for the relevant minerals they provide to Signet. Suppliers which are not RJC members may be requested to undertake an independent audit, based on Signet’s risk assessment and other factors relating to the supplier’s SRSP Compliance Report.
Suppliers which achieve RJC certification with the CoP 2019 for the relevant materials they supply Signet are not required to be audited separately by Signet, unless there are special reasons or identified risks which may cause Signet to require an additional audit.
