Statement on Annotation #15 on rosewood

As an observer at the CITES Annotations Working Group, Pearle together with international music stakeholders also signed a statement on Annotation #15. The annotation defines the exemption for travels with musical instruments, their parts and accessories containing rosewood (Dalbergia spp., exempt from Dalbergia nigra). The signatories endorse the revised annotation #15 which have substantially supported noncommercial and commercial cross-border movement of musical instruments, while relieving CITES management authorities of unnecessary permit burdens.
