State mark for precious metals and jewels

The National Authority for the Consumer Protection (ANPC) claims that it aims at increasing the responsibility of jewelers by compelling them to mark jewels with a brand that makes them responsible for the conformity of objects, alongside the state brand, in order to increase the safety of the market, tvr.ro informs. Several organisations of jewelers announced in a press conference that the modification of OUG 190/2000 on the regime of precious metals in Romania, which is already in the Chamber of Deputies, will enforce a state monopoly in the sector by forcing the state mark upon all operators. ANPC spokeswoman Monica Pretorian explained that the modification of the regulation is meant to increase the responsibility of jewelers, who will apply a responsibility mark that allows identifying and sanctioning them for lacks of conformity.
