Trade in endangered species

The 3028th Council meeting on General Affairs held in Brussels on 26 July 2010 decided not to oppose adoption by the Commission of a regulation amending Council regulation 338/97 on the protection of wild fauna and flora. The amendments implement changes to the international trade regime in endangered species agreed at the 15th session of the conference of the parties to the convention on international trade in endangered species of wild fauna and flora, held in Doha, Qatar, in March 2010.  The Commission regulation is subject to the regulatory procedure with scrutiny. Under that procedure, the Council can oppose an act that exceeds the implementing powers of the Commission, is not compatible with the aim or content of the basic instrument or does not respect the EU's principles of subsidiarity or proportionality. The Council having given its consent, the Commission may now adopt the regulation, unless the European Parliament objects.
