CBSA/NRCan Single Window Initiative Trade Session on Kimberley Process
Canada is a comparatively recent entrant into the club of diamond producing nations but already ranks third in the world in terms of production value (approximately $2 billion). A great deal of emphasis is placed on the Canadian diamond industry as an alternative to the so-called blood or conflict diamonds mined in Africa. Canada was one of the main supporters of the Kimberly process, a certification initiative created in 2000 to help deter the trade of conflict diamonds.
The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), in conjunction with Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), is hosting a Trade Consultation Session, via WebEx, with a focus on the importation of products regulated under the Export and Import of Rough Diamonds Act.
The objectives of this webinar will be to provide participants with an update on the Single Window Initiative (SWI) as it relates to products regulated under the Kimberley Diamonds Process and to provide a forum for discussion on the following aspects:
- Update of SWI
- Business process changes for the Kimberley Diamonds Process
- Data requirements for the Kimberley Diamonds Process
