On the 1st March 2021, the LPPM announced that it intends to create Platinum and Palladium Sponge Accreditation lists to run in parallel with its current Good Delivery bar lists. All refiners currently on the GD bar lists will be entitled to be added to the Sponge Accreditation GD lists if they so wish.
Refiners not currently on the Good Delivery bar lists can apply for Sponge accreditation. The process for Sponge accreditation is similar to the full GD bar application process. This will require successful completion prior to the applicant being added to the Sponge accreditation list.
