Edinburgh Assay Office to resume services

The Edinburgh Assay Offices announced it will resume its hallmarking service after initially closing its doors on 24 March. 

The office will now re-open on 28 April following a “successful” week-long closed door trial with volunteer staff.

Over the past two weeks, the assay office has also been working internally to modify its hallmarking process and building layout in order to meet government guidance on social distancing in the workplace.

The office will now be open daily for deliveries by courier and post from 8.30am until 2.00pm, and will also receive goods from customers directly over the counter by prior appointment only. 

Customers wishing to visit the assay office are advised to contact the office in advance.

Scott Walter, assay master and CEO said: “I’m extremely proud of our team of volunteers who have worked so hard to help us return to an operational state and I look forward to building on our initial service as we go forward. 

“I’m grateful to all of our customers for their patience and their understanding during these difficult times. I know they are all facing the same problems we are, and I hope that our return to an operational service, albeit a limited one, will help support them.”
