CITES Meeting of the Parties Scheduled in August | Hopes for Easing of Regulations in the Trade of Rosewood, Cedrela and Woolly Mammoth For Music Products

The 71st meeting of the CITES Standing Committee, the 18th meeting of the Conference of the Parties and the 72nd meeting of the CITES Standing Committee will be held in Geneva, Switzerland from 16 – 28 August 2019.

The association has advised our own agency the Department of Energy and Environment during this process, and hope that we have its support to the proposed industry exemptions.

This will be a meeting crucial for our industry as our coalition seeks an exemption for finished instruments from the regulations applying to Dalbergia, Cedrela and Woolly Mammoth. The Coalition’s submissions to the committee are as follows;
