New CITES Annexes now in force

New Annexes to the EC CITES Regulations were published on 12 August. The new Annexes implement in the EU all the changes and species listings agreed at the last CITES Conference (CoP15), the main ones of which were outlined in our previous News Item, “CoP15 Outcomes”.

Detailed information on interpreting the listings relating to timber will be made available as soon as definitive advice has been issued by the CITES Secretariat. In the meantime traders should seek guidance from the UK CITES Management Authority if in any doubt on requirements.
