The British Hallmarking Council is seeking new members!
If you are interested in the historic practice of Hallmarking, which protects consumers by the assay (testing) of the precious metal content of an item such as jewellery, then you may be interested to hear that the British Hallmarking Council is looking for three people to become new members.
These are public appointments and whilst they are non-paid roles, there is scope for reimbursement for travel, subsistence and other reasonable expenses. The BHC are looking for people with a background in consumer protection, the precious metals trade, or someone keen to work in a board environment and/or regulator.
Meetings are held twice a year at the four UK Assay Offices: Birmingham, Edinburgh, London and Sheffield, and you can contribute by monitoring and supporting the work of the UK Assay offices and their sub-offices, including on compliance with the Hallmarking Act.
Overall, members of the BHC participate in promoting good relationships with and between: the Assay Offices; the trade; consumers and the government to ensure that hallmarking supports innovation and protects consumers.
