2021 02 23 CINOA’s input for the EC Have Your Say on proposed ivory trade rules

Submission for the EC “Have Your Say” Consultation on ivory trade proposal

CINOA comments on the EC review and proposal on further restrictions and regulations on the trade of ivory as indicated in the Draft Revised Guidelines whose purpose is to interpret Council Regulation (EC) No 338/97 (the “Basic Regulation”) and Commission Regulation (EC) No 865/2006 for EU Member States.

CINOA, as the principal international representative of the micro- and small businesses in the fine art and antiques trade1, supports proportionate legislation that stops trade in items at high risk of “laundering” ivory from recently killed elephants or which may enter the illegal ivory trade chain, whilst allowing regulated trade in low-risk items.
