International certificates on “Good Delivery” status on gold, silver, platinum and palladium bullions

Standard bullions of precious metals of a fine quality, high purity and brand are given status “Good Delivery” of London associations of precious metals market - London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) and The London Platinum and Palladium Market (LPPM). Those associations give quality certificates and make lists of enterprises classified according to metals (Good Delivery Lists) published on LBMA’s site for gold and silver and on the LPPM’s site for platinum and palladium. You can see our company in these lists since 1999.
In 2014 in the presence of LBMA Moscow representative office inspector – Mr. Alfred H. Knight – a proactive (prediction) monitoring on production, sampling and chemical analysis of standard gold and silver bullions was held, as a result our company received confirmation of status “Good Delivery” of London Bullion Market Association.
