HOW TO BECOME A GLOBAL SIGHTHOLDER SALES (GSS) CLIENT IN THE 2015 – 2018 CONTRACT PERIOD

There are two types of GSS rough diamond customers in the 2015 – 2018 contract period: Sightholders and Accredited Buyers.

Sightholders qualify for term contract supply (provided via the ‘Intention to Offer’ or ‘ITO’ planning process), which indicates the nature and value of rough diamonds GSS anticipates being able to offer Sightholders across the forthcoming 12 month selling period.

Accredited Buyers have the opportunity to purchase rough diamonds on a more ad hoc basis via ‘ex-plan’ availability, which Sightholders can also purchase. The requirements for becoming a Sightholder are slightly different from those for becoming an Accredited Buyer.

However, all customers must adhere to some common requirements to be eligible for GSS supply – these are known as the Compliance Criteria.
