British Hallmarking Council appoints new chairman


A dedicated and active member of the South Yorkshire community, Sheffield-born Christopher Jewitt, 52, (pictured left) has previously served as master cutler of the Company of Cutlers in Hallamshire, and was appointed a deputy lieutenant for South Yorkshire in 1996. He is currently a director of the Steel City hand tool manufacturing firm Footprint Sheffield Limited.


As chairman of the British Hallmarking Council, Jewitt will oversee hallmarking across the United Kingdom; a system which has been established for several hundred years. He will chair a team that will work to uphold the high levels of protection for both trade and the consumer on hallmarked products, and to ensure that any legislation brought about within the industry is upheld.
