The Jewelers Vigilance Committee is currently working on the writing of the Federal Trade Commission’s Green Guides, designed to help marketers avoid making environmental claims that mislead consumers. In response to a call for public comments on its page, it is gathering endorsements and feedback, to advocate for the gem, jewelry and watch industries on behalf of new upcoming FTC revisions. JVC is also working with the U.S. government to standardize and present information for the trade regarding Russian diamond sanctions, how they will be implemented and will share potential advisories for the gold industry as well. The JVC board of directors works closely with JVC in-house staff to ensure trade compliance with the law, promote good business practices, and monitor the market.

“Each of these new board members brings special expertise and will move JVC forward on upcoming projects. The JVC Board is our most valuable asset, and we rely on this extraordinary group to help protect the industry in these complex times,” says Tiffany Stevens, CEO & General Counsel Jewelers Vigilance Committee.
