As a private foundation, the AWDC has no members.

The diamond trade is subject to very strict regulations in Belgium. For instance, companies have to be registered with the Ministry (Federal Public Service) of Economy in order to be able to trade diamonds internationally.

The paperwork and certification of all imports and exports of all types of diamonds (rough, polished, powder ...) is done at one single point in Belgium: Diamond Office. This is a department of the AWDC, in which we collaborate with the Ministry of Economy and the Ministry of Finances (Customs). Customs clearance is done by the Ministry of Finances. All parcels are subsequently checked by 18 diamond experts, which operate under supervision of the Ministry of Economy. They check the weight, the classification (HS Code) and the value of every parcel (100%), and compare these with the data on the trade documents. The Kimberley Process Certificate, which is mandatory for all shipments of rough diamonds, is verified by the Ministry of Economy. The Ministry also issues the Kimberley Process Certificates for all shipments of rough diamonds that are to be exported to countries outside the EU.

For this service - which benefits the trading companies, increases transparency and to a certain extent prevents the abuse of diamond trade for illegitimate purposes such as money laundering - a handling fee (retribution), based on the value of the shipment, is charged to the diamond companies. This is the only source of revenue (core financing) for the AWDC.

The AWDC sometimes charges a fee for certain specific activities (i.e. participation in trade missions abroad), but these are merely used to cover the expenses of the activities, and are not used as core financing.
