Hallmarking by UK Assay Offices overseas

The Government is seeking views on whether hallmarks applied by UK Assay Offices overseas should be different from hallmarks applied in the UK. And we would like to remind our members how they can be a voice in the industry.

This consultation seeks to understand whether stakeholders would wish articles of precious metals which are hallmarked by UK Assay Offices in their overseas sub-offices should carry a hallmark which is different from the hallmark applied in the UK.

Responses to this consultation will inform the decisions we will take in respect of hallmarks to be used off-shore and the guidance we will produce for the trade and consumers.

This consultation closes at 11:45pm on 22 September 2017
