Requirement for Reporting the Kimberley Process Certificate Number for Exports and Reexports of Rough Diamonds
The U.S. Census Bureau (Census Bureau) is amending the Foreign Trade Statistics Regulations (FTSR) to incorporate the requirement that the Kimberley Process Certificate (KPC) number for the exports and the reexports of rough diamonds be filed through the Automated Export System (AES). This rule serves to carry out the purposes of Executive Order 13312 of July 29, 2003, which implemented the Clean Diamond Trade Act and the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme in the United States.
