CED introduces Jewellery integrity campaign

Nov '05
CED Commissioner Timothy Tong at Jewellery Integrity Campaign
Information Services Department of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) informed that Hong Kong Customs and Excise Department (CED) has launched the Jewellery Integrity Campaign to promote industry-wide trading of genuine goods.

The campaign will build up a self-regulating mechanism among industry players through the adoption of clear trade descriptions in jade and diamond retailing activities.

Commissioner of Customs & Excise Timothy Tong stated at launching the campaign that the self-regulation is key to upholding intellectual property rights for jewlery products.

Under the campaign, jade traders will mark on the sales invoices and transaction records true and concise descriptions of the product grading.

Diamond traders will mark a true description of the product quality according to the marking standard of carat, colour, purity and cut.

Contact points will be established between Customs and the industry to establish implementation details. They include:
- assisting Customs in identifying fakes;
- giving laboratory testing certificates;
- assisting prosecution by testifying in court; and,
- providing information about fake products discovered in the course of product testing
