HKPMAC is an independent testing laboratory that established in 2010 by The Chinese Gold & Silver Exchange Society (CGSE). In order to tie in with the internationalized standards and requirements of precious metal industry, HKPMAC was set up and obtained the qualification of accredited laboratory under "Hong Kong Laboratory Accreditation Scheme" of the Hong Kong Accreditation Service. The testing scopes are included Fire Assay – Cupellation Method and Difference Method by ICP-OES. Apart from gold fineness testing, they would like to expand their service to jewellery industry in future.
The Chinese Gold & Silver Exchange Society (CGSE) founded in 1910 and is the sole exchange in Hong Kong which trades physical gold and silver, and operates in pursuance of section 3 of Chapter 82 of Laws of Hong Kong, under which its operation as a commodity exchange is legally exempted.
It is the first time I visit their office and laboratory. Moreover, I joined the dinner of the Joint Ceremony to Celebrate the Inauguration of the 44th Term Executive & Supervisory Committees of CGSE, the 105th Anniversary of CGSE and the Launch of “Shanghai-Hong Kong Gold Connect” on 10 July 2015.
