Al Etihad Gold is bound with Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) with its rules and regulations concerning responsible supply chain management.

Our reputation is a product of quality service provided to our clients from across the globe. We are fully committed to follow best practices, market standards and business ethics to attain a responsible supply chain. 

We understand that Gold, originating from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, its adjoining countries and other conflict-affected and high-risk areas are sometimes mined and sold by armed groups to finance unfair labor practices or human rights violations. Some of these materials can make their way into the supply chains of the products used around the world. It is our policy to avoid processing gold that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups from conflict-affected regions.

Our Company implements and maintains a robust policy and detailed processes with common principles and standards for Responsible Supply Chain Management, Anti Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism which includes:

(a) Scope;

(b) Responsibilities;

(c) Criteria for Supply Chain Due Diligence;

(d) Know-Your-Customer (KYC) Processes;

(e) Monitoring and Surveillance; and

(f) Training

As part of our commitment, we undergo and yearly compliance audits in accordance with the DMCC Guidance. Our Compliance and Assurance Reports are available in the links below.
