IGI Re-Certified by Responsible Jewelry Council for North and South America

The International Gemological Institute (IGI) continues to promote the importance of upholding credibility and high industry standards through its submissions to independent external auditors. The Institute announced that IGI – North & South America has been granted re-certification by the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) against its 2013 Code of Practices. The New York-based organization attained this designation by meeting the highest ethical, social and environmental standards as established by the RJC.

RJC members adhere to and are independently audited against the RJC Code of Practices – an international standard on responsible business practices for diamonds, gold and platinum metals. After a member has become RJC certified for the first time, independent verification is required at the end of each certification period to ensure continual adherence and to maintain certified Member status.

“It is a pleasure to announce IGI – North & South America has been re-certified against the 2013 Code of Practices. The new provisions under the 2013 Code of Practices address important issues for our members and their supply chain. We are delighted to see members achieving re-certification against the standard and warmly congratulate IGI – North & South America,” says Andrew Bone, RJC’s Executive Director.

“We are honored to once again receive this important distinction,” said Jerry Ehrenwald, president and CEO of IGI – North & South America. “IGI is dedicated to supporting the RJC’s commitment to promote responsible and ethical business practices throughout the industry. By adhering to these core values, we will continue to instill and reinforce consumer confidence.”

IGI – North & South America has been a member of RJC since 2009 and will retain its current certification for the next three years.
