Location: World
Subject: Trade
Species: All Rhino Species

Original text on this topic:
The implementation status of CITES Resolution 9.14 was difficult to evaluate, and it provided no reporting mechanism. It was therefore revised at the CITES Conference of the Parties in Nairobi (COP 1 1) as Com 11.19. The revision of Resolution Conf. 9.14 urges parties to identify, mark and register rhinoceros stock and to implement comprehensive legislation and enforcement controls. All range states, and other parties where applicable, are now strongly urged to submit a report, according to an agreed format, to the Secretariat six months before each CITES Conference of the Parties detailing the status of captive and wild populations. The report includes sections on legislation and enforcement. Com 11.19 also calls for engagement among parties and the IUCN-SSC Rhino Specialist Groups to achieve the resolution's aims.
