Additional Refiners Pass LBMA Responsible Gold Audit

Thursday, September 19, 2013

The LBMA is pleased to announce the latest set of Good Delivery Gold Refiners to have successfully passed its Responsible Gold Audit Programme.  

The refiners who have successfully passed are:

•CCR Refinery - Glencore Canada Corporation, Montréal, Canada
•Johnson Matthey Gold and Silver Refining Inc, Salt Lake City, USA
•Johnson Matthey Ltd, Brampton, Canada
•Istanbul Gold Refinery, Kuyumcukent, Turkey
•Valcambi S.A, Balerna, Switzerland

The refiners listed above have successfully passed an independent third-party audit, confirming they comply with the LBMA Responsible Gold Guidance. The audit reviewed the refiners' production over a 12 month period. This process will be on-going, and the remaining GD refiners are now preparing for an independent third-party audit throughout 2013 and into early 2014.

Through mutual recognition of other industry initiatives, the LBMA also recognises that refiners have achieved compliance with the Responsible Gold Guidance by achieving either the Responsible Jewellery Council's Chain-of-Custody certification or Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) CFS audit protocol.

Further announcements will follow as audit reports are received during the course of the year.
