Imports of Euphorbia antisyphilitica (candellila wax)

From 23 June 2010 (the date when decisions agreed at CITES CoP15 came into force) until new EU Annexes take effect exempting finished products of Euphorbia antisyphilitica from CITES controls, Animal Health will accept as alternative evidence to a CITES export permit, the invoice relating to such a product as issued in the country of export. If such an invoice is unavailable or is otherwise unsuitable (e.g. if further corroboration of legality is considered necessary), we will require an e-mail from the country of export’s CITES Management Authority. Import permits for finished products of Euphorbia antisyphilitica will be issued free of charge. Once the new EU Annexes have been published (expected late July/early August 2010) import permits for finished products of Euphorbia antisyphilitica will no longer be required.
