Emirates Gold has undergone and passed on first inspection due-diligence audits in accordance with the LBMA guidance and also the DMCC Rules and guidance from 2012 to 2021. This result, which is unique in the Middle East, is evidence of our commitment to deliver on our promises. Also, the 2013 to 2022 LBMA audits were conducted by auditors who are on the LBMA’s Approved Service Provider List. Links to our LBMA Responsible Gold Certificates, Compliance Reports and Independent Assurance Reports can be found below. Also, Emirates Gold is included on the list of “Conformant Smelters” by the Responsible Mineral Initiative (RMI, which used to be the Conflict-Free Smelter Program (CFSP))
In fact, Emirates Gold is one of the first gold refineries in the world to undergo an RMI audit against the new and revised RMI Standard (this standard was effective only in June 2018, but our audits were retroactive for the 2017 calendar year). Thus Emirates Gold has now passed three different responsible sourcing audits for the calendar years 2017 and 2018 (LBMA, DMCC and RMI). (Note: The LBMA started in 2014 and then stopped issuing certificates to all Associate refiners in 2016 for administrative reasons, but we have continued nonetheless to undergo and pass LBMA audits by an approved LBMA auditor.)
