MMTC-PAMP India Awarded ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 Certifications

GENEVA, March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

We are delighted to announce that MMTC-PAMP India Pvt. Ltd, has been awarded ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications by QS Zürich AG, a world-renowned certification body. MMTC-PAMP India Pvt. Ltd. is a joint venture between PAMP SA Switzerland and MMTC Limited, a Government of India Undertaking.

The certification was delivered in the second year of business operations, which is a remarkable achievement.  This the more so, as it follows the Accreditation of the Company in 2013 by the London Bullion Market Association as a Good Delivery Silver Refiner.

ISO 9001 certification endorses quality management systems. In this instance, it acknowledges the excellence of the company's entire refining and production chain for precious metals and refined/semi-refined products. ISO 14001 sets out the criteria for an environmental management system, whilst OHSAS 18001 is a British Standard issued in recognition of occupational health and safety management systems.

PAMP is very active in the development and the implementation of responsible supply chain of precious metals practices through the industry, such as the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals, the LBMA Responsible Gold Guidance and the Swiss Better Gold Association.

PAMP is furthermore a certified member of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), members of which have to comply with stringent ethical, social and environmental standards. PAMP is also one of the first refiners to have passed the LBMA's Responsible Gold Guidance Audit.
