Detail

The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) regulates the import, (re)export, sale or movement of endangered wild animals and plants. These are listed in Annexes A, B, C and D of the EU Regulation 750/2013

Fees for processing CITES applications may not be charged when the ownership or use of the specimen may benefit the conservation of that species. There are four areas of work which will be considerd:

  • captive-breeding or artificial propagation programmes
  • re-introduction programmes
  • education and training
  • research programmes

The guidance explains how to apply, the supporting documents required for the application and the main activities which may be granted a waiver from paying the fees.

Specimen means any living or dead plant or animal (or any parts of it) that is listed in the regulations.
