We are pleased to release GemFair’s Responsible ASM Programme materials in French. We are also releasing Version 2 of the ASM Standard Requirements, which includes an update to the assurance programme timeline and assessment requirements.
The GemFair Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining (ASM) Standard Requirements form the basis of GemFair’s Responsible ASM Assurance Programme and enables GemFair to support the formalisation of the ASM sector. GemFair purchases diamonds from artisanal and small-scale mined sources that are extracted, processed and transported in a responsible and legitimate manner, including:
in the absence of contributing to serious human rights abuses, such as forced labour or child labour;
human and worker rights are maintained;
conflict finance and risks of corruption have been reduced;
diamonds are traceable from the mine site through to export; and
ASM miners are empowered with greater knowledge of the value of their production.
