Posted by Kelsay Calvaruso on 4/17/23 5:00 PM

On April 13, 2023, in a notice, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) announced the resumption of trade for any Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) species under an import permit, export permit, or re-export certificate issued by Mexico. Trade was suspended on March 27, 2023, for failure to submit a compliance action plan to the Secretariat. Mexico submitted the compliance plan, and the Secretariat has withdrawn the recommendation to suspend trade, effective immediately.
