The Egyptian Organization for Standards and Quality seeks to mandate Egyptian standard ES 6685⁄2016 “Jewellery – Fineness of precious metal alloy” as they notified the World Trade Organization.
Ministerial Decree No.1098/2016 gives the producers and importers a transitional period of six months to abide by the Egyptian standard ES 6685⁄2016. This Standard specifies a range of fineness of precious metal alloys (excluding solders) recommended for use in the jewellery industry.
A consultation is open until August 21, 2017.
