Petition Hallmarks by assay offices located overseas should not be identical to UK marks.
In 2013 the 4 UK Assay Offices were allowed to open up sub-offices in other countries. The intention was that 'offshore' assayed items would carry a different hallmark. Birmingham Assay Office in Mumbai, India are using Birmingham hallmarks identical to the UK marks. This misleads the consumer.
