There is no system independently to monitor the implementation of th certification prooess by the respective countries. Therefore if governmenb ar not ri;orous in delivering their certificates, smuggling is liable to continue. Th certificaton applies only to the import / export sector. There is no regulation : the mining and dealing levels, leaving room for conuption and smuggling.2s It was decided at a meeting of the Kimberley Process held in South Aftic during Odober 2003 to establish a voluntary monitoring process. According t, this agreement diamond-producing countries can request independer monitoring viSib. This provision is aimed at improving the credibility of thr monitoring systems by allowing independent experts to evaluate them.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
