CITES Appendix II Amended for Rosewood aka Dalbergia

Post by guitar hiro » Sat Dec 21, 2019 2:22 pm

On August 28, 2019, CITES amended Appendix II for the export/import documentation requirement on all species Dalbergia aka Rosewood.

This reverses the CITES Appendix II export/import documentation requirement for Dalbergia that went into effect January 2, 2017.

What does this mean? Effective November 29, 2019, you are no longer required to have CITES documentation for the export/import of guitars that contain Rosewood aka species Dalbergia.

This should be a relief for those that were paranoid of having their guitar(s) confiscated because of international shipping concerns over the past ~3 years.

Thanks, good info.

Foe emphasis though, Brazilian RW is still restricted. Last section of the l'Arrivée link:

"(PLEASE NOTE, this amendment does not include the heavily restricted travel of the protected Brazilian Rosewood species Dalbergia nigra which remains on the Appendix I list of highly endangered species)."

Correct; Brazilian is highly restricted & is CITES governed within Appendix I, not Appendix II.
