Décrivez les principales caractéristiques de la politique/mesure: 
Regulation of trade (including movement into and from the EU) of objects containing parts of protected species listed under the Convention
Quels sont les résultats atteints jusqu’à présent grâce à la mise en œuvre de la politique/mesure ?: 
At the last Conference of the Parties to the CITES Convention (August 2019) the EU and other Parties agreed on the exclusion of finished musical instruments (as well as finished musical instrument parts and finished musical instrument accessories) from the scope of the CITES listing of rosewood timber. This excludes owners of such items from fulfilling certain administrative obligations that are otherwise required for international transfer of items containing such timber.
Partenaires engagés dans la mise en œuvre de la politique/mesure : 
La mise en œuvre de la politique/mesure a-t-elle été évaluée ?: 
Si oui, quelles sont les principales conclusions/recommandations ?: 
The CITES Secretariat launched Notification 2020/033 in April 2020 requesting CITES Parties to submit information about potential problems with the implementation of the exemptions for rosewood species as explained above. The EU has not noted any problems with this implementation. Due to Covid-19, no discussion has taken place yet at the international level on this issue.
