The Gold Standard

With the sharp rise of house burglaries involving stolen jewellery, the NPA have teamed up with the Police and other partners to produce a voluntary code of conduct for the face to face purchase of second hand precious metal and jewellery.

The Gold StandardIt has been designed to provide protection to NPA members, aid the Police in tracing stolen items of jewellery and to encourage greater consumer confidence in trading with accredited dealers.

The introduction of the Gold Standard is a joint initiative between the NPA with Surrey Police, NAJ and is accredited by the National Police Chiefs' Council, Trading Standards Institute and National Measurement Office.

The NPA encourages its members to register for this new voluntary code.


This sets a common standard for the trade and allows valuable Police time to be spent focusing on non-compliant shops.

  1. It will reduce the risk of inadvertently purchasing stolen jewellery and facing Police seizures.
  2. It will provide the Police with evidence of where stolen items of jewellery might be traded.
  3. It will provide the consumer with additional confidence to trade their items of jewellery in your store.

By registering for the code you will be able to immediately display the official certification in-store, receive a logo for your own publicity material, and feature on our public list of registered members.
