Precious metals jewelry /article weighing 1 gram or more shall be marked with a mark that indicates the fineness content. In addition, either a hallmark from our Assay office (the “kattfot”) or a registered responsibility mark is required.
With the responsibility mark, without “Kattfot”, the manufacturer itself takes full responsibility for the article keeping the indicated fineness content.
This, of course, places special demands on both you who manufactures jewelry and you as a consumer and buyer of jewelry, silverware, baptism gifts and more.
In the Assay Office we analyze the precious metals gold and silver to secure the fineness for manufacturers, sellers, importers, private persons and more. We also implement analyzes of raw materials, semi-finished products and scrap containing precious metals.
The results are presented for analysis in the form of a report. Finished jewelry is analyzed by touchstone test and then marked with the “kattfot”.
Contact us and we will help you with analysis and marking. Our Assay Office for precious metals is located in Borås.
We also have a smaller regional organization, which means we can handle a certain service even out in the country.
