Convention on the Control and Marking of Articles of Precious Metals

September 16, 2013

The 73rd meeting of the Standing Committee of the Convention on the Control and Marking of Articles of Precious Metals was held today, the 16th of September. The INCM was present, along with around 30 other countries, to discuss matters related to the analysis and marking of precious metals.

The majority of European countries have practiced the control of precious metals for hundreds of years. Originally, the activity was created to verify the metal content of gold and silver coins; nowadays, it is mainly applied to precious metal artefacts.

The Convention on the Control and Marking of Articles of Precious Metals (also known as the "Precious Metals Convention" or the "Vienna Convention") is an international treaty between the member states, aimed at facilitating the international trade in articles of precious metals.
