CITES Trade Suspension with Mexico

On March 27, 2023, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) announced the suspension of all commercial trade in CITES species to/from Mexico, effective immediately.

The U.S. Endangered Species Act prohibits trade in specimens contrary to CITES, including the import, export, and re-export of any CITES species subject to a trade suspension.  Effective immediately, all shipments containing CITES specimens traded for commercial purposes under an import permit, export permit, or re-export certificate issued by Mexico for the species, are subject to the enforcement action.
