*CITES Annotations:
Annotations are used to describe which parts and derivatives are covered by the listing and will be subject to regulation under CITES.  The CITES Parties have agreed that any annotated listing of an animal or plant species in the CITES Appendices always includes the whole live or dead animal or plant, as well as any specimen specified in the annotation.  Appendix-I listings cannot be annotated and always cover the whole live or dead animal or plant and all readily recognizable parts and derivatives.  The Parties have further agreed that a listing of a plant species in Appendix II or Appendix III, and an animal species in Appendix III, without an annotation should be interpreted as including the whole live or dead animal or plant and all readily recognizable parts and derivatives.

12           Artificially propagated hybrids and cultivars of Taxus cuspidata, live, in pots or other small containers, each consignment being accompanied by a label or document stating the name of the taxon or taxa and the text 'artificially propagated,' are not subject to the provisions of the Convention.

#1           All parts and derivatives, except:
a) seeds, spores and pollen (including pollinia);
b) seedling or tissue cultures obtained in vitro, in solid or liquid media, transported in sterile containers;

#2           All parts and derivatives except:
a) seeds and pollen; and
b) finished products packaged and ready for retail trade. 

#4           All parts and derivatives, except:

b) seedling or tissue cultures obtained in vitro, in solid or liquid media, transported in sterile containers;
c) cut flowers of artificially propagated plants;

#12         Logs, sawn wood, veneer sheets, plywood and extracts. Finished products containing such extracts as ingredients, including fragrances, are not considered to be covered by this annotation.

**As outlined in our letter of November 17, 2016 (a corrected version of which was posted on April 13, 2017, and can be accessed at: https://www.fws.gov/international/pdf/letter-appendix-II-timber-listings-november-2016.pdf), a number of species and populations of Dalbergia spp. were already listed in the CITES Appendices prior to January 2, 2017.

Except for the Panamanian populations of Dalbergia darienensis, all previously listed species/populations of Dalbergia spp. included in Appendix II or Appendix III covered only “logs, sawn wood and veneer sheets,” or “logs, sawn wood, veneer sheets and plywood.”  The Appendix-III listing of Panama’s population of Dalbergia darienensis included an annotation that exempted “finished products packaged and ready for retail trade.”

Because the pre-CoP17 Appendix II/III listings of Dalbergia spp. did not cover manufactured items such as guitars, those items were not subject to CITES controls until January 2, 2017.  We consider manufactured items made from any species of Dalbergia spp., except for the Appendix-I listed Brazilian rosewood (D. nigra), that were manufactured before January 2, 2017, as pre-Convention specimens.  Furthermore, manufactured items made after January 2, 2017, from pre-Convention wood would also be considered pre-Convention.

For trade involving the CITES-listed commodities (e.g., logs, sawn wood, veneer sheets) of the previously listed species/populations, any pre-Convention date will be determined by the earliest listing date of the species or population in the CITES Appendices, as outlined in our November 17 letter.
