Management of the ethical, social, and environmental risks associated with your supply chain is essential to protect and distinguish your products and reputation. This daunting task is more easily achieved when precious metal and mineral inputs are verified as having met responsible sourcing criteria. SCS assists you, whether you are meeting sourcing protocols of major gold and precious metals buyers, satisfying Dodd Frank Section 1502 reporting requirements, or seeking third-party certification to distinguish your metals, gemstones, and jewelry in the marketplace.
Choose from among our environmental and social performance-based certifications, trusted by leading finished product manufacturers and global retailers. Our auditors have a thorough understanding of ethical jewelry supply chains. Our full traceability, risk assessment, and risk mitigation programs enable buyers to avoid raw materials extracted from conflict-affected or high-risk areas.
