The State Diamond Trader’s transformation criterion for the selection of clients is based on the South African Mining Charter. Companies seeking to become clients will be invited to apply when the State Diamond Trader has taken the decision to call for clients. Amongst others, the two main requirements to conduct business with the State Diamond Trader are:

  1. A Diamond Beneficiation Licence as issued by the South African Diamonds and Precious Metals Regulator.
  2. An operating factory.

A client invitation will be published on our website at the relevant time and in the media (i.e. newspapers).
