The Birmingham Assay Office has launched a standalone website dedicated to all the services offered by The Laboratory division of the organisation. These services have expanded in recent years far beyond its original assaying capability and now includes a full range of tests focusing on the Precious Metal, Fine Jewellery, and Costume Jewellery industry.
Many Tests have been developed directly in response to customer requirements and this innovative approach, backed by a huge amount of research has resulted in a wide portfolio of tests specific to the jewellery and watch industry.
In addition, The Laboratory now also offers services to the electrical, toy and medical industries – for example lead, RoHS and EN71/3 testing. A range of training, research and consultancy services are also available.
