THE KIMBERLEY PROCESS ACCORD

The Kimberley process accord was established in order to eradicate the production of diamonds within a conflict.

It is an agreement between governments, NGO’s and the diamond industry, and aims to establish minimum national standards in which diamonds can be exported. In 2002 the treaty was ratified and adopted by governments all over the world, and today, more than 99% of world’s diamonds come from conflict-free sources, officially being traded under the UN mandated Kimberley process.
