Protecting the Consumer and Servicing
the Trade with Independence and Integrity

Introducing AnchorCert Group

Since 1773, Assay Office Birmingham has been dedicated to a core mission: protecting the consumer and serving the trade with integrity, innovation and independence.
It’s what we do.

As our clients needs have grown and diversified, so have we. Today, we are trading as the ANCHORCERT GROUP, which incorporates Assay Office Birmingham (assaying, hallmarking, laser-marking), AnchorCert Analytical (melt & assay, consumer product safety testing, quality assurance), AnchorCert Gem Lab (diamond grading, coloured gemstone ID, pearl authentication), SafeGuard Valuations (jewellery, watch and silverware) and AnchorCert Academy (consultancy, retail training, heritage events and conferencing).

Given our diverse and broad offering, we’re constantly thinking of new ways to educate customers – prospective, new and existing – on the range of services that we can provide.
So, we worked with The Telegraph Business Club, to produce a video that highlights everything that we do here at the AnchorCert Group.
