CITES Documentation

These animals are appendix 1 listed animals, as such legally require CITES paperwork, I am currently working on updating my paperwork through DEFRA, the body that deals with CITES issues in the UK I’ll post any hiccups or problems related to this procedure should they arise.

For more about DEFRA see below link:

As promised a quick update on the CITES paperwork procurement...first thing, no problems whatsoever, I was dealing with a chap in Bristol...his details and contact info below, I'm sure he's one of many that work out of the offices...

Procedure as follows,

Fill in relevant application and along with original CITES certificate - send to the above address - a CITES Licensing Case Officer will assess your application and inform you of approval or otherwise in 2-3 weeks....

Microchip - If you animal/s require microchips, ensure you pick these up and have them inserted at you local vet surgery....send the microchip serial number along with your application at the outset.

That's it really, a fairly straightforward exercise that wasn't painful at all....

Finally, all of the above is good for us folk in the north, what is the office our southern members should deal with? If you know or have had dealings please post here...thanks Very Happy

Great post, Tony!

Out of interest, what's the cost of a C.I.T.E.S application, and is it per animal or can they be block applied (if for example you had a litter of Dumeril's)?

Raymond, the pair I had cost £25 to process, of course the purchase and insertion of the microchip ought to be included, however, this will be variable dependent on vet practises......as far as I'm aware each snake in a litter should be applied for separately....to me it wouldn't make sense otherwise...obviously I don't have a definitive answer here...down the road and as and when my Boas breed, I'll be on to DEFRA for advice on certification anyway, so no worries!!

Good post Tony, very informative. but I'm wondering why I had to deal with Switzerland a few years back when there was someone across the water?
