Consultation description

We want to know what you think about our proposals to update the regulations for trading endangered species in the UK.

The update will:

  • make sure the regulations are consistent with updated EU regulations
  • look at the designations of ports of entry and exit used to bring CITES specimens into or out of the UK
  • improve powers to enforce the regulations, so that it can better adapt to changes and trends in illegal wildlife trade

The Control of Trade in Endangered Species regulations are how CITES is enforced within the UK.
