Here is the proof:
What is fake here? The accreditation claims of the certificate itself, or the fact that the management system for counterfeiting is being accredited?
Counterfeit gold coins aren’t explicitly stated on the certificate but the company lets you know it’s accredited to ISO 9001:
“Notice: Chinatungsten Online (Xiamen) Manu.& Sales Corp. is a very professional and serious company, specializing in manufacturing and selling tungsten fake gold coin and other tungsten related products for more than two decades. We are a professional tungsten fake gold coin manufacturer. Our tungsten gold fake coin is only for souvenir and decoration purpose. Here we declare: Please do not use our tungsten fake gold coin and other fake gold coin products for any illegal purpose. We can provide all kinds of tungsten fake gold coin as your requirements. Our tungsten fake gold coin products are qualified.“
UKAS is not the accreditation body in this case, although it is very active in China. But we see the International Accreditation Forum‘s logo among others.
Gold is a political metal that enables its owners to hold governments to account for their counterfeiting which causes debasement and inflation.
Is the ISO quality cartel complicit in attempts to artificially depress the price of gold?
Or is it just co-incidental? Or is the Chinese factory just seeking business in paper dollars? Is its accreditation phony? Whatever the facts, the inspection cartel seems to have certified that the company counterfeits with quality. Perhaps “quality” – and even inspectability – is missing the point?
It’s inconvenient that it’s outside the scope of the ISO cartel to audit Fort Knox and see if there’s any gold still there.
