BV Schmuck & Uhren becomes first German trade association to join Responsible Jewellery Council

26 february 2019

The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), the standards setting and certification organisation for the entire jewellery supply chain, announced that BV Schmuck & Uhren has become the first German jewellery trade association to be members of the RJC.
Announced at INHORGENTA MUNICH, one of Europe’s largest jewellery industry events, the organisation pledged to meet the RJC’s standards and, by joining as a trade association member, will act as a conduit to its members and the German jewellery industry to promote and encourage implementation of RJC membership and certification.
The RJC, which has more than 1,100 members globally, including 14 other trade associations in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Southeast Asia, has been keen to work with a renowned German jewellery industry association in a bid to further embed the importance and relevancy of RJC certification in one of Europe’s key jewellery markets.
Guido Grohmann, managing director at BV Schmuck & Uhren, said, “We are delighted to become a member of the RJC. Many organisations we work with have already been certified and our goal for the future is to promote RJC’s Code of Practices to better support our members.”
Edward Johnson, Director, Business Development at RJC, said, “BV Schmuck & Uhren becomes the first German association to join RJC and through doing so demonstrates its commitment to a responsible supply chain for its members and the wider German industry. We believe working closely together will help us promote the many benefits responsible business practices provide to businesses in the supply chain - from mine to retail - in Germany and beyond.”
