Foreign manufacturers of articles of precious metal

Options for manufacturers within EEA concerning marketing of articles of precious metal in Denmark..

As a manufacturer of precious metal in Denmark, you have the following three options in regards to marketing of your articles:

  1. Domestic responsibility mark
    If you wish to work with a domestic Danish responsibility mark, you can choose to obtain the mark by an agent or agency in Denmark, who is responsible for the conformity of the articles in accordance with the Danish regulation. Import of the articles will be subject to inspection and control by the Danish Assay Office.
  2. Regulations of the internal market within EEA
    Articles from EEA countries are deemed to be equivalent to articles manufactured in Denmark which are subject to the inspection of the Danish Assay Office, provided that certain provisions in the Danish regulation regarding marking and control of the articles are fulfilled. According to the provisions, the responsibility mark must be notified to the Danish Assay Office in order to prevent confusion with another responsibility mark already applied for articles of precious metal. The regulations assume that this notification is made by the legal authority who plans on distributing the articles in Denmark. All correspondence in relations to this notification with the Danish Assay Office must be in Danish or in English. For an English version of the legislation, visit the Danish Product Contact Point.
  3. CCM-mark
    Articles of precious metal control marked with the CCM-mark may be marketed in Denmark without any obstacles

The Danish Assay Office hopes that this information is sufficient for your choice of marketing solution in Denmark.

The Danish Assay Office is closed for summer vacation between the 17th July to the 28th July 2017.
