EU: Endangered species (implementing powers)

In the blog post EU: Protecting endangered species (fauna and flora) we announced amendments to Council Regulation (EC) No 338/97 on the protection of species of wild fauna and flora by regulating trade therein, by Commission Regulation (EC) No 407/2009 of 14 May 2009.



These Regulations, which relate to the CITES Convention, have now been complemented by a Regulation, which shifts and illustrates the implementing powers of the Commission:


Regulation (EC) No 398/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Councilof 23 April 2009 amending Council Regulation (EC) No 338/97 on the protection of species of wild fauna and flora by regulating trade therein, as regards the implementing powers conferred on the Commission, published in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) 21.5.2009 L 126/5.
