Issuance of permits
Directed to Parties
The Parties should not issue permits for pre-Convention stocks, except for export to countries having become Parties to the Convention after the date of entry into force of the Convention in the issuing country or for export to States not party to the Convention.
The Parties should verify the origin and the species of specimens for which they issue export permits, in order to avoid permits being issued for specimens of Appendix-I species when the transaction is for primarily commercial purposes and no import permit has been previously issued.
The Parties should be particularly vigilant regarding the issuance of documents for very valuable specimens and specimens of species included in Appendix I.
To avoid abusive or fraudulent use, the Parties should not use forms for their internal-trade certificates that are identical to CITES forms.
