Pearle response to consultation on the EU approach on Wildlife Trafficking
The European Commission invited stakeholders to give their input on the EU approach on Wildlife Trafficking.
In the context of this discussion the main concern for the live performance sector is related to the travelling and touring with musical instruments which contain parts of endangered CITES-listed species such as ivory or Brazilian rosewood.
The EU aims to find a solution for travelling with those musical instruments by introducing an EU musical instrument certificate.
