Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order amends the provisions of the Endangered Species (Import and Export) Act 1976 (“the Act”), which restricts the importation, exportation and sale of endangered species.
Articles 2 and 3 and the Schedule to the Order remove from Schedules 1 and 2 to the Act (Animals and plants the import and export of which are restricted) certain kinds of animal and plant. Article 4 removes from the effect of Schedule 3 to the Act (Items the import and export of which are restricted) certain plant and animal derivatives.
The effect of these provisions is to remove all the import and export controls imposed by the Act other than those which duplicate the controls imposed by Council Regulation 3626/82 on the implementation in the Community of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of wild fauna and flora, as amended.
Article 5 revokes the Endangered Species (Import and Export) Act 1976 (Modification) Order 1982, the Endangered Species (Import and Export) Act 1976 (Modification) Order 1983 and the Endangered Species (Import and Export) Act 1976 (Variation) Order 1985, which make Amendments to the Act which are superseded by those made by this Order.
