Invalidation

At OrSuisse, the retrieval of stored precious metals is possible at all times. For this procedure, the Swiss Law of Obligations (Schweizerische Obligationenrecht) demands that the respective security is presented.

If a warehouse receipt has been lost, it has to be invalidated. This is decided by a Swiss court of law. After the conclusion of this procedure, a new warehouse receipt will be issued by OrSuisse.

Your ownership of the deposited precious metals remains uncompromised, even during the invalidation.
In order to enable OrSuisse to guarantee this, please report the loss of a warehouse receipt immediately (see report of loss).
