Control of operations that breed Appendix-I species
in captivity for commercial purposes
- The Secretariat intends to include the attached information concerning a captive-breeding operation in Singapore for Scleropages formosus in the Register of operations that breed Appendix-I species in captivity for commercial purposes. This operation breeds species that are already included in the Secretariat’s Register.
- In accordance with the provisions of Resolution Conf. 12.10, Annex 2, paragraph 1 b), the Secretariat hereby notifies all Parties of the application for registration, and shall provide full information on the operation referred to in paragraph 1 to any Party that requests it (in the language in which the application was provided).
- In accordance with the provisions of Resolution Conf. 12.10, Annex 2, paragraphs 2, 3 and 4, an operation is included in the Secretariat’s Register 90 days after the date of transmission of the application to the Parties unless the Secretariat receives an objection from a Party and it is not withdrawn within this time. In this case the Secretariat shall refer the documentation to the Animals Committee, which shall respond within 60 days. Then, the Secretariat shall facilitate a dialogue between the Management Authority of the Party submitting the application and the Party or Parties objecting to the registration, and shall provide the recommendations of the Animals Committee, and allow a further 60 days for resolution of the identified problems. If the objection is not withdrawn or the identified problems not resolved, the application shall be postponed until it is decided by a two-thirds majority vote at the following meeting of the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 out in Article XV of the Convention.
