HA NOI – The ministries of Industry and Trade and Finance have recently amended their circular on rough diamond import and export and certification.
The amendment is aimed to enforce regulations of the Kimberley process certification scheme, introduced by United Nations General Assembly Resolution 55/56 certifying the origin of rough diamonds be free of conflict.
As for individuals and organisations, when exporting rough diamonds, they will have to give the Customs Office an original certification, one copy issued by the Ministry of Industry and Trade's import and export management office, and other papers following the customs regulations.
If traders are State agencies, they have to carefully check and ensure that the batch of exported rough diamonds are in accordance with the certification.
