Link: LPPM Sponge Accreditation for Platinum and Palladium

A lot of work has been done by the LPPM referees during 2019 and 2020, including two major round robin analysis exercise of sponge samples and method comparison. This has resulted in a set of standards detailed on the website.

For refiners currently on the LPPM GD bar list Sponge Accreditation is not metal dependant i.e., a refiner only on the Platinum GD bar list will be added to both the Platinum and palladium sponge accreditation lists.

All the current rules and standards for LPPM Good Delivery ingots remain unchanged.
