RAPAPORT...  Cecilia Gardner, President, CEO and general counsel of the Jewelers Vigilance Committee (JVC), will present an overview, to the World Bank on October 30, of the U.S. jewelry industry’s response to government regulations that require the industry to develop and execute antimoney-laundering programs. Gardner is a Certified Antimoney-Laundering Specialist.

This is the second time the World Bank has asked Gardner to address antimoney-laundering officials from approximately 16 third-world and developing nations and members of the International Monetary Fund.

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to once again present U.S. [antimoney-laundering] regulations addressing compliance for dealers in precious metals, precious stones and jewels, with officials invited by the World Bank," said Gardner.

“The U.S. government has asked the jewelry industry to be alert for red flags that may indicate possible money-laundering activities. I appreciate the opportunity to share the progress the U.S. jewelry industry has made in its response to antimoney-laundering government regulations,” she said.
