The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) regulates the import, export, re-export and introduction from the sea, or shortly international trade, of live or dead specimens or readily recognizable parts of wild fauna and flora between the contracting parties, through authorisation and certification only issued where certain requirements are fulfilled. The Convention aims to prevent further endangerment during the trade of species of wild fauna and flora.
Turkey became a State Party to the Convention on 22 December 1996. The Ministry of Environment issued an implementation regulation in the Official Gazette of 27.12.2001 issue 24623 to lay down the principles and procedures to control the international trade of species of fauna and flora included in CITES, and ensure coordination among relevant institutions and organizations. While the Convention does not make direct references to invasive alien species, the Conference of the Parties nevertheless make decisions on the matter.
