Title: Implementing the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES); Updates Following the 16th Meeting of the Conference of the Parties (CoP) 

This proposed rule will revise regulations implementing CITES by incorporating provisions related to the results of CoP16. The revised regulations will help us more effectively promote species conservation, fulfill our responsibilities under CITES, and help those affected by CITES to understand how to conduct lawful international trade in wildlife and wildlife products. These changes will bring U.S. regulations in line with revisions adopted at the most recent CoP.
