Group Quality

Our Reliable Quality Receives High Accolades from Japan and Overseas.

Asahi Pretec carries out precious metal recycling in Japan, and is a full-fledged member of the Japan Gold Metal Association. Its gold, silver, platinum and palladium metals are recognized as brand products for delivery on the Tokyo Commodity Exchange. In addition, its products are highly regarded in the global market for their reliable quality, with its gold and silver certified by the London Bullion Market Association [LBMA], and its platinum and palladium certified by the London Platinum and Palladium Market [LPPM] as Good Delivery bars.

Asahi Pretec also acquired RJC (Responsible Jewellery Council) certification in July 2019. The corporation is a member of the supply chain for precious metals like gold and platinum, and was able to clear the RJC's strict standards audit in order to become the fourth company and first refinery in Japan to acquire the certification. The RJC is an international non-profit organization that evaluates transparency, ethics and environmental efforts for the handling of gold, platinum, diamonds and other precious metals in the jewelry industry from mining to retail. The corporation will make a further contribution to fulfill all refinery responsibilities moving forward by engaging in business activities and initiatives in compliance with RJC's standards.

Asahi Refining carries out gold and silver refining in North America, and its products have been certified as Good Delivery bars by LBMA. The company is one of the leading firms in the world in terms of handled volume.

Handling of conflict metals

So that our customers around the world can use our gold products free from concerns, we have established a control system in accordance with guidance from bodies such as the OECD and the LBMA regarding non-purchase and non-use of conflict metals[*1], with inspection and certification by third-party organizations[*2].

  • *[*1] Conflict metals can be defined as minerals derived from countries or regions where there are recognized to be inhumane acts such as conflict, human trafficking, slavery, forced labor, child labor, abuse, or war crimes, or illegal activities such as terrorism or money laundering, which can become a source of conflict funding.
