RAPAPORT... The U.S. State Department requires that rough diamond importers and exporters  file an annual report with the Office of the Special Advisor for Conflict Diamonds at the U.S. Department of State each calendar year on April 2. The Jewelers Vigilance Committee reminded the trade today that the report  must state the total carats of rough diamond imports and exports and any stockpiles remaining at the end of the year. 

Once completed, the report should be submitted by email to USKimberleyProcess-at-state.gov.   The Jewelers Vigilance Committee offers a form to assist diamond dealers with this obligation, available to members on the JVC Forms Bank at www.jvclegal.org or by calling JVC at 212.997.2002.  The JVC form is provided as a convenient template, but there is no requirement that the information be reported in any particular format – so long as it is reported.
