Geneva, 12 November 2003
1. The CITES Secretariat is pleased to send herewith to the Parties two copies of a CD-ROM with training presentations on CITES. Produced in the three languages of the Convention (English, French and Spanish), it comprises training presentations in PowerPoint format, the text of the Convention, CITES Appendices I, II and III (valid from 16 October 2003) and the standard CITES export/import permit – re-export certificate.
2. The PowerPoint presentations include an introductory section and cover the following topics: definitions, roles of CITES Authorities, role and function of the Scientific Authority, permits and certificates, special procedures, using the Appendices, reading the Appendices, Science, non-detriment findings and data, role of quotas in CITES, trade with non-Parties, permit management systems, filling in permit forms, reservations and plants.
3. This CD-ROM is an updated and improved version of the one that was distributed at the 12th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (Santiago, 2002) and the Secretariat hopes that Parties will find it a useful tool in their CITES training programmes.
4. Additional copies are available on request from the Secretariat.
