Sale and marketing of animals of specially protected species: authorisation

A number of animals and plants of specially protected species require a marketing authorisation for sale (including exchange) or any other use for consideration.

  • wild fauna and flora of the species listed in Annex IV to Directive 92/43/EEC on the conservation of natural habitats and of wild fauna and flora,
  • birds of European species taken from nature,
  • naturally removed animals and plants of species strictly protected in accordance with Annex 1 of the Ordinance on the Protection of Wild Animal and Plant Species (BArtSchV).

Further information on specially protected animal and plant species in accordance with the Ordinance on the Protection of Wild Animal and Plant Species (BArtSchV):

The corresponding application and evidence of legal origin.

Emission: 10,00 - 80,00 EUR
