Certificate of origin diamond application

The chain of custody or the custodial sequence (chronological documentation or paper trail) that occurs as ownership or control of the diamonds is transferred from one custodian to another along the supply chain. Ontario's Certificate of Origin Program guarantees the origin of diamonds from the De Beers' Victor Mine. In order to ensure the integrity of the certification program, MNDM monitors and tracks the transfer of the rough diamond supply from the De Beers Victor Mine in northern Ontario to De Beers' sales location in Gaborone, Botswana, back to the Sudbury,Ontario manufacturing facility and finally to the end consumer.
