Complete Title: 
Guidance for CITES scientific authorities : checklist to assist in making non-detriment findings for Appendix II exports
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

Use of and trade in wildlife is a fact of life for human society around the globe. Article IV of the CITES Convention requires that exporting countries restrict trade in Appendix II species to levels that are not detrimental either to species’ survival, or to their role within the ecosystems in which they occur (known as the “non-detriment finding”). Based on two workshops convened by IUCN to develop some pragmatic assistance for Scientific Authorities, this publication presents the background to the development of the non-detriment finding checklist and explains how the checklist itself is designed to work, in the hope that Scientific Authority staff will take and develop the parts of the approach that they find useful.
