Notification to the Parties
No. 2000/022 Geneva, 23 March 2000
Export quotas for 20001. Through Notification to the Parties No. 1999/82 of 5 November 1999, the Secretariat requested the Parties to submit their national quotas for the year 2000 by 31 December 1999 at the latest.
2. By the date of issuance of this Notification, many Parties had not submitted their national quotas to the Secretariat. The Secretariat is therefore not in a position to send a substantially complete list of the national quotas for the year 2000. It expects to be able to do this by the end of June.
3. However, in order to be able to provide interested Parties with the information currently available, the Secretariat has included its provisional quota list for the year 2000 in its Web site (http://www.cites.org). This list will be updated as additional information is provided to the Secretariat. The Parties are strongly recommended to read the introduction to this quota list carefully.
4. Ideally, an annual export quota should be exhausted (but never exceeded) in the year to which it applies. However, Parties that intend to authorize export in the year 2001 of specimens that should have been exported as part of the export quota for the year 2000, should inform the Secretariat before 15 January 2001 about the quantities still held in stock and the reason why they had not been exported. Otherwise the Secretariat may not be in a position to confirm the validity of the permits concerned.
5. This Notification replaces Notifications to the Parties No. 1999/47 of 1 July 1999, No. 1999/53 of 30 July 1999, No. 1999/68 of 30 September 1999 and No. 1999/81 of 5 November 1999.
