Trade in Elephant Ivory - Consultation process now open on the revision of EU rules on trade in ivory

Date Released: Thursday, January 28, 2021

As you may have been actively participating in the consultation on additional measures to be taken by the EU with regard to ivory trade, we would like to inform you about the publication of the draft proposal introducing changes to the Implementing Regulation and the Guidance document on ivory trade.

Today, documents have been made publically available on the Commission’s website. The public consultation for feedback will run until 25 February 2021, allowing all interested stakeholders to provide their feedback through the 'Have your say' portal.

The proposal has been substantially modified following the feedback received in the last trimester of 2020.

We want to thank you all for your useful contributions and feedback received during the process leading up to this proposal and look forward to continuing exchanges with you on this and other matters in the future.
