Council Decision of 8 July 2019 establishing the position to be taken on behalf of the Union regarding the envisaged adoption of amendments to the CITES Appendices.
The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) aims to protect wild animals and plants against over-exploitation through international trade. The Convention entered into force on 1 July 1975.
The Conference of the Parties (CoP), the governing body of the Convention, meets every two to three years to review the implementation of the Convention. Most notably, it considers and adopts proposals to amend the lists of species in Appendices I and II to the Convention.
