§ 21 – Stewart Dawson London & CITES
The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, also known as CITES, aims to ensure that trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten the survival of endangered species in the wild by regulating and monitoring their international trade. The CITES Secretariat is administered by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Convention came into force in 1975.
HOW IT OPERATES
Approximately 5,000 species of animals and 28,000 species of plants are protected by CITES against over-exploitation through international trade. CITES works by subjecting international trade in specimens of selected species to certain controls. All import, export, re-export and introduction from the species covered by the Convention must be authorized through a licensing system.
Stewart Dawson London only produces merchandise using skins from sustainable sources. We do not use species threatened with extinction. The CITES convention skins we import into the EU are accompanied by an export certificate issued by the government of the country of origin.
The rules and legislation vary from country to country. For these reasons, shipment of products may be delayed pending the receipt of the necessary authorizations from the exporting and importing countries.
The Stewart Dawson London website only sells merchandise made from CITES listed animals within the United Kingdom and European Union.
