PostSubject: Cites Appendix III   Fri Nov 23, 2012 1:00 am

The other day I was going over some of the initial paperwork on the AQIS website, because I am about to import a quantity of cacti from Thailand, and I came across a section refering to Cites III. I was pretty tired by the time I got to it, so I didn't go through the lengths of reading up on it.
One of the other members here, Nehme, did a little research and came up with this:

Quote :

There was some amendments to the CITES affecting Australia on 25/10/12

Based on my readings CITES appendix III is not that bad Wink
; it offers the opportunity to protect a native wild animal or plant
species it believes are in need of international trade controls. These
species are not necessarily "endangered" and may be traded for
commercial purposes. All that is required is a export permit in this
case. Species on this list are "watched" in case trade does appear to be
impacting its survival.

Basically if you want to buy a native
wild animal or plant species for export listed on Appendix III; you are
required to pay for an export permit. An export permit in Australia cost
$75 valid for 6 months. Shipments without appropriate permits risk
rejection by importing countries

After reading that I decided to post a new thread in here because most likely sooner or later it will affect some of the cactus species.

I did a little research myself on it, and this is what I got from the CITES website:

Appendices I and II



  • Appendix I includes species threatened with extinction. Trade in specimens
    of these species is permitted only in exceptional circumstances.
  • Appendix II includes species not necessarily threatened with extinction,
    but in which trade must be controlled in order to avoid utilization incompatible
    with their survival.
    The Conference of the Parties (CoP), which is the supreme decision-making
    body of the Convention and comprises all its member States, has agreed
    in Resolution Conf. 9.24 (Rev. CoP15) on
    a set of biological and trade criteria to help determine whether a species
    should be included in Appendices I or II. At each regular meeting of the
    CoP, Parties submit proposals based on those criteria to amend these two
    Appendices. Those amendment proposals are discussed and then submitted
    to a vote. The Convention also allows for amendments by a postal procedure
    between meetings of the CoP (see Article XV, paragraph 2, of the Convention),
    but this procedure is rarely used.

    Appendix III

    This Appendix contains species that are protected in at least one country,
    which has asked other CITES Parties for assistance in controlling the trade.
    Changes to Appendix III follow a distinct procedure from changes to Appendices
    I and II, as each Party’s is entitled to make unilateral amendments
    to it.
The CITES website is well documented and this link leads to the "How it works" page:
