Kimberley Process

A structure set up to ensure that diamonds sold internationally do not finance wars or other conflicts. Countries subscribing to the Kimberley Process must put in place regulations requiring diamond dealers to buy diamonds only from known sources. Diamonds shipped across international borders must be certified as conflict-free or they may not be sold. The Kimberley Process was established in 2003.
