MEDIA RELEASE 

Perth Mint upholds its global accreditations

The Perth Mint is one of the few refiners in the world accredited as a refiner, weight master and assayer with the five major global precious metals exchanges – the London Bullion Market Association, New York Commodity Exchange, Dubai Multi Commodities Centre, Shanghai Gold Exchange and the Tokyo Commodity Exchange. As such, we abide by the highest standards and conduct yearly audits of all our customers’ Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices.

All audits are conducted by independent, external auditors in line with the requirements of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance Minerals, LBMA Responsible Gold Guidance, DMCC Responsible Gold Guidance and Responsible Business Alliance (formerly the EICC).

The Perth Mint continues to invest in improving transparency and compliance at every level of the supply chain. The organisation takes ESG very seriously and rejects any suggestion that it fails to fully comply with all regulatory requirements or the industry’s highest ethical standards. The Perth Mint also strongly rejects any suggestion that it deals in “conflict gold”.
