What is SA8000 certification?
SA8000 is an auditable certification standard that encourages organizations to develop, maintain, and apply socially acceptable practices in the workplace.

What is RJC certification?
It is about sustainable development and corporate social responsibility
It applies to the whole chain of gold, silver, PGM, diamonds and coloured gemstones.
It requires compliance with the “Code of Practice” (COP), a standard issued by the RJC (Responsible Jewellery Council). The RJC COP provides a common standard for ethical, social, human rights and environmental practices.
It includes the following topics: labour rights and working conditions; responsible sourcing from conflict-affected and high-risk areas; environmental management; financial accounts; legal compliance; product disclosure.
PUBLICLY REPORT ON DUE DILIGENCE FOR RESPONSIBLE SOURCING FROM CONFLICT-AFFECTED AND HIGH-RISK AREAS.
Better Silver S.p.A. has regularly verified that all materials (Silver and Gold) used in its production cycle come from LBMA Good Delivery List refineries or RJC 2019 COP / RJC CoC certified suppliers.
This verification was carried out by checking directly on the LBMA and RJC websites the validity of the certificates of refiners and of silver and gold suppliers from which Better Silver Spa is sourced.
The management system of Better Silver Spa, in fact, includes policies and procedures with clear responsibilities
and adequate training for the involved personnel to guarantee the correct implementation of the “Due diligence for responsible sourcing from conflict-affected and high-risk areas”, in accordance with the requirements of RJC COP 2019, provision 7, and of OECD Due Diligence Guidance, Step 5.
Risk assessment is carried out every year (on Management Review) by checking the validity of the requested rtifications as described above.
