(2)Subject to the provisions of subsections (3) and (4) below, all the provisions of the Order of 1979 and the Order of 1993, and of any other enactments which relate to the Incorporation and to its business of an assay office, shall apply equally (so far as they are capable of doing so) to and in relation to its other activities, and to and in relation to the Incorporation in so far as its undertaking includes them (but, save as respects the reference in article 9(3) of the Order of 1979, specific references to articles brought to be assayed shall not extend to articles received by the Incorporation in the course of its other activities).

(3)The Incorporation shall keep accounts in respect of its other activities separate from the accounts kept in respect of its business of an assay office and (notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (8) thereof) article 12 of the Order of 1979 shall apply in relation to the former accounts as it applies in relation to the latter, except that paragraph (5) of that Order shall not apply to the accounts kept in respect of the Incorporation’s other activities; but references in this subsection to accounts do not include balance sheets and nothing in this subsection shall prevent the Incorporation from preparing a single balance sheet in respect of the whole of its undertaking.

(4)In so far as the business of the Incorporation consists of its other activities, the words in article 19 of the Order of 1979, “if so authorised by the British Hallmarking Council”, shall not apply.

(5)Notwithstanding section 22 (2) of the Act of 1973, an order under section 16 (1) (c) of that Act in relation to the Incorporation shall, except so far as it provides otherwise or the contrary otherwise appears, apply in relation to its other activities as well as to its business of an assay office; and such an order may consist of or include provisions which apply only to the Incorporation’s other activities.
