Approved by the Order of the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine of October 20, 1999 No. 244

The instruction about procedure of branding of jewelry and household products from precious metals, about carrying out testing and examinations of precious metals, products from them, inserts of gemstones, museum objects containing precious metals and gemstones, prints of the state assay brands

I. General provisions

1. This Instruction determines the main requirements and procedure of branding of jewelry and household products from precious metals, procedure for carrying out testing and examinations of precious metals, products from them, inserts of gemstones, museum objects containing precious metals and gemstones, prints of the state assay brands.

2. Provisions of this Instruction are obligatory for:

the state companies of assay control, legal entities and physical persons which are subjects of managing (further - subjects of managing) and also for physical persons which are not subjects of managing (further - physical persons) and which give products from precious metals on branding to the state companies of assay control, to subjects of managing with the branding right the state assay brand of products from self-produced precious metals - regarding Sections II and V of this Instruction, except for the requirements which are not within their competence.

3. The state companies of assay control which belong to the sphere of management of the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine perform obligatory branding of the jewelry and household products made of precious metals, testing, control analyses and examinations of materials, jewelry and household products, containing precious metals, examination of inserts of gemstones, the museum objects containing precious metals and gemstones.

4. In this Instruction terms and concepts are used in the following values:

1) testing - expert and assay transaction by determination of test of alloy of precious metal (alloys of precious metals) in products by nondestructive method;

2) the product from precious metal is the any jewelry (household) product made of alloy (alloys) and precious (precious) metal (metals) - gold, silver, platinum, palladium which is used as ornament or household item;

3) additional part of product - part of jewelry or household product which by the sizes, and also on technical and esthetic appointments supplements the main part, but at the same time can independently be used;

4) minor part of product are fine details of jewelry or household product (slips, elements of connections and so forth);

5) examination - research of the actual content of precious metals in products and materials (test of alloy of precious metal), characteristics of inserts of gemstones, prints of assay brands according to regulating documents;

6) the combined product - any jewelry or household product consisting of the parts made of alloy of precious metal, and the parts made of non-noble metal or other material;

7) the control analysis - the chemical analysis of content of precious metals in the selected test from assigned amount of products from precious metals which is carried out for the purpose of determination of test of alloy in products from precious metals or their samples;

8) the main part of product - part (detail) of jewelry or household product which determines (characterizes) its appointment and contains the largest mass of precious metal;

9) assay needle - alloy of precious metal of certain test, precisely certain chemical composition which is applied to comparison during testing of alloy of precious metal. The assay needle consists of brass plate (derzhavka) with the alloy soldered on it which on the chemical composition corresponds to the established tests;

10) assay payment - payment of expert and assay works;

11) the assay stone - on the mineralogical structure belongs to siliceous slates, has characteristic black color, uniform fine-grained structure, is steady against effect of mineral acids, is applied during testing of products from precious metals;

12) alloy of precious metal - the solid solution containing, at least, one precious metal;

13) the chemical analysis - determination of content of precious metals in products and materials using the verified techniques of chemical analyses;

14) values - the products and materials containing precious metals and gemstones.

Other terms and concepts are used in the values given in the Law of Ukraine "About state regulation of production, production and use of precious metals and gemstones and control of transactions with them".

5. Collection and sending to processing enterprises of waste which contain precious metals and are formed at the state companies of assay control when implementing testing and the analysis of values, during conducting examination of values, and also from the fulfilled assay needles, performed at the state companies of assay control with observance of requirements of the current legislation.

II. Requirements to products from precious metals
