Consultation description

In light of the UK’s largest diamond company, De Beers, moving its operations to Botswana in October 2013, and the reduced number of certificates that will be issued as a result, the Government Diamond Office (GDO) will be unable to recover the full cost of issuing certificates under its current fee structure. We need to address this shortfall, in order to continue to maintain an effective service for the rest of the UK rough diamond industry and to manage public money in line with Government’s best practice on fee charging.
