General information and classification
Singapore is a signatory to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), an international agreement put in place to ensure that wildlife species are not threatened to extinction by trade.
Signatories regulate the import, export, and re-export of CITES specimens through permits which are issued only when certain trade conditions are met. CITES specimens include live animals, animal parts, and animal-based products.
More information on CITES’ regulation of endangered species can be found here.
