The precious metals market is governed by a unique blend of laws which regulate the financial, physical and human elements of the supply chain.

All market participants, from financial institutions, to refiners to mining companies, are subject to a range of legislation across the world. Being a global authority, LBMA assists its members and the wider industry to comply with these applicable laws through consultation with its Regulatory Affairs Committees, proactive advocacy efforts, and relationships with regulatory agencies and law enforcement.

The resources in this section have been put together to help market participants comply with the laws put in place to protect the integrity of the market and those who operate within in.
