SUPPORT FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE LOCAL COMMUNITY
The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS or KP) is an international protocol, underpinned by the United Nations and by the signatory governments of the countries, binding members-including Calderoni-to a series of transparency requirements and strict controls on origin, to prevent placing illegal or uncertified precious stones on the market. The Kimberley Process is reinforced by a United Nations mandate; diamonds exported must be accompanied by a certificate attesting compliance with the Kimberley Process and authenticated by governmental authorities.
