All jewellers selling gold, silver or platinum jewellery are hereafter required to issue a ‘Responsibility Certificate’ to the customer to ensure the genuineness of their product, Environment Minister Anura Priyadharshana Yapa said..

The jeweller is required to specifically quote the amount of carat or PPT (Part per Thousand) in gold, silver or platinum jewellery, the trade mark and the price respectively in the Responsibility Certificate under the Assaying and Hallmarking Regulations, Minister Yapa stressed.

He added that some 15,000 are in the jewellery business in the country and annual turnover exceeds Rs. 10 billion on a rough estimate. (SAJ)

    Excellent. Most of our jewellers sell poor quality gold and this move should ensure the right product is sold.

    A highly commendable move by the government!!! Keep it up!!!

    Saman Wednesday, 13 October 2010 12:40 PM

    Government must monitor these activities and penalize the law breakers!. Good move though.

    should have done long time ago
    under fair trade practises act.

    Mushi Thursday, 14 October 2010 05:13 AM

    I think, jewelers will split the price into two as the one with certificate and other without certificate because this will be like a guarantee now. BUT What is the mechanism to monitor that this is done to ensure genuine jewels.

    Have a bar cod in the jewel and the certificate as well for verification.
