The Parties shall be notified when any Party confirms that it issues phytosanitary certificates for export of artificially propagated plants of Appendix-II species.
Information provided by the Parties on nurseries involved in the CITES export trade in the major source countries shall be compiled and a directory of this information shall be published.
