Abstract

Objectives: To amend Art. XXI of the 1973 Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora. Summary of provisions: Art. XXI is amended to open the Convention for accession to regional economic integration organisations which have the competence in matters transferred to them by their Member States and covered by the Convention.

In accordance with Article XVII, paragraph 3, of the Convention, the Gaborone amendment shall enter into force 60 days after 54 of the 80 States that were party to CITES on 30 April 1983 (i.e. two-thirds of them) have deposited their instruments of acceptance. However, at that time it will enter into force only for those States that have accepted the amendment (no matter on what date they became party to the Convention.) The amended text of the Convention will apply automatically to any State that becomes a Party after the date of entry into force of the amendment. However, for States that became party to the Convention before that date and have not accepted the amendment, it will enter into force 60 days after they do accept it.
