The list of documents for CITES permission for the export of Mongolian oak and Manchurian oak from the Russian Federation has been reduced

The list of documents required for obtaining a CITES permit to export Mongolian oak and Manchurian ash from the Russian Federation has been reduced. According to the press service of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology of the Russian Federation, this decision was made following the meeting with the head of department Sergey Donskoy with the participation of representatives of the Federal Service for Environmental Supervision and the Federal Forestry Agency.

“The list has been clarified and significantly reduced in connection with numerous requests from representatives of executive authorities and exporters of timber,” the Ministry of Natural Resources explains. In addition, starting from November 1, 2014, the powers of the CITES Administrative Body in Russia to issue permits for the export of timber and sawn timber from Mongolian oak and Manchurian ash will be vested in the Department of Rosprirodnadzor for the Far Eastern Federal District.

In March, CITES 2014 granted the application of the Russian Federation for inclusion in the List III Convention of Mongolian Oak (Quercus mongolica) and Manchurian Ash (Fraxinus mandshurica). This list includes valuable species of woody plants for the protection and protection of which a special regime is provided. In addition, these species are included in the red books of the Trans-Baikal Territory (Mongolian Oak) and the Amur Region (Manchurian Ash). ”

The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) is an international government agreement signed in 1973 in Washington. The functions of the administrative body of the CITES Convention in Russia are performed by Rosprirodnadzor.
