LBMA - The Competent Authority for the World Bullion Market

The LBMA is an international trade association, representing the London market for gold and silver bullion which has a global client base. This includes the majority of the gold-holding central banks, private sector investors, mining companies, producers, refiners and fabricators. The on-going work of the Association covers a number of areas, among them refining standards, trading documentation and the development of good trading practices.

The maintenance of the Good Delivery Lists including the accreditation of new refiners and the regular retesting of listed refiners, is the most important core activity of the LBMA. The LBMA Brochure provides further information about the LBMA.
