Control of operations that breed Appendix-I species
in captivity for commercial purposes
1. The Secretariat intends to include the attached information (in PDF format), concerning captive-breeding operations in China, Malaysia, Mexico, Spain and Thailand in the Register of operations that breed Appendix-I species in captivity for commercial purposes. These operations breed species that are already included in the Secretariat’s Register.
2. In accordance with the provisions of Resolution Conf. 11.14, Annex 2, paragraph 1 b), the Secretariat will provide full information on the operations referred to in paragraph 1 above to any Party that requests it (in the language in which the applications were provided).
3. In accordance with the provisions of Resolution Conf. 11.14, Annex 2, paragraph 3 and 4, the operations listed in the attachment to this Notification will be included in the Register 90 days after the date of this Notification unless the Secretariat receives an objection from a Party. If any Party objects to the registration, the Secretariat shall facilitate a dialogue with the Management Authority of the Party submitting the application and allow a further 60 days for resolution of the identified problem(s). If the objection is not withdrawn or the identified problem(s) not resolved, the application shall be postponed until it is decided by a two-thirds majority vote at the following meeting of the Conference of the Parties, or by postal procedures equivalent to those set forth in Article XV of the Convention.
4. The Secretariat wishes to take this opportunity to clarify that the captive-breeding operations in Madagascar and Mauritius for Crocodylus niloticus were deleted from the Register because the specimens being bred are from a population included in Appendix II, and therefore the operations need no longer to be included in the Register.
