Republic Metals Corporation Achieves Re-Certification With The RJC Chain-of-Custody Standard
MIAMI, April 21 – Republic Metals Corporation is proud to announce its re-certification of the Responsible Jewellery Council’s (RJC) Chain of Custody Standard, effective January 28th, 2018.
Republic Metals was audited by UL, a universally recognized and RJC-accredited auditing body, and found to be in 100% conformance with the standard. The RJC’s Chain of Custody Standard is dedicated to supporting claims of responsible sourcing for Gold, Platinum, Palladium, and Rhodium materials throughout the global precious metals supply chain. Republic Metals’ certification acknowledges that Republic has policies and risk management procedures in place that exemplify the international standard of responsible, conflict-free sourcing of precious metals. Satisfaction of the stringent RJC audit requirements recognizes Republic Metals as a conflict-free refiner not only by the RJC, but by the RBC, LBMA and the DMCC.
“Republic has been a RJC Certified Member since July 2014, and a Chain of Custody Certified Entity since January 2015. Less than 10% of Certified Members around the globe have achieved both certifications! We are proud that Republic has assumed a leadership role in shifting the global precious metals industry towards a standardized, more responsible and conflict-free precious metal supply chain.” says Rich Lani, Director of Compliance for Republic Metals Corporation.
