The International Confederation of Jewellery, Silverware, Diamonds, Pearls and Stones (known as CIBJO, following the French acronym for the organisation name)

CIBJO is a non-profit confederation of national and international trade associations and commercial organisations in the jewellery supply chain. CIBJO acts as an organisation of record for accepted trade practices and nomenclature for the jewellery industry, throughout the world. The organisation acts to uphold consumer confidence by supporting initiatives and programmes that address supply chain abuses, including those associated with the OECD DDG, and produces a wide range of guidance documents on these subjects and others, for the jewellery industry.

 


CIBJO Responsible Sourcing "Blue Book"

The OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas ("OECD DDG")

 

Description

CIBJO's Responsible Sourcing Book, commonly known as a "Blue Book" in keeping with the naming convention for other CIBJO guidance documents, sets out CIBJO's responsible sourcing policy, as a series of recommendations and guidance for CIBJO members and the wider jewellery supply chain. Among this guidance, section 4.2 of the Blue Book provides a simple checklist for OECD-oriented due diligence. The checklist is not a full guide to conducting due diligence, but it can serve as a basic introduction to the key principles of the process, for small organisations with very limited resources.
