Title: Implementing the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora; Updates Following the 16th Through 18th Meetings of the Conference of the Parties 

This rule would revise regulations implementing the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) by incorporating provisions related to the results of CoP16, CoP17, and CoP18. 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.
