CITES ANIMALS COMMITTEE

The Animals Committee assists in the development and maintenance of standardized lists of animal species and in preparation of identification manuals. The Animals Committee may provide advice on management techniques and procedures, draft resolutions for consideration by the COP, and perform any other functions entrusted to them by the COP or Standing Committee. For example, through the "significant trade process," the Animals Committee reviews the international commercial trade in species on CITES Appendix II in order to determine if Parties are granting export permits only after determining that the export will not be detrimental to the survival of that species, as required by Article IV of CITES. When this is found not to be the case, the Animals Committee recommends remedial measures that must be taken by the Party concerned, once the measures are approved by the Standing Committee.
