A shared code of conduct that supports the excellence of the Swiss industry.
In June 2019, members of the association signed a code of conduct which incorporated, in a shared vision, the principles of responsibility linked to their activity. Importers, refiners-smelters, manufacturers and users of precious metals commit to respect these principles in order to support the excellence of the Swiss industry as a whole, as regards sustainable development.
These standards mainly relate to ethical trading, strict respect for and development of regulations, the responsible use of resources, protection of the environment and the desire for transparency within the industry.
If any members breach the code of conduct they will be penalised. The penalties incurred range from a simple warning to dismissal from the association.
