THE CITES ARTICLE 8 DEROGATION
The CITES Article 8 derogation - Council Regulation (EC) No 338/97 - the so-called "antique derogation" allow to sell this kind of item (defined as pre-1947). Current legislation states that if an item has been manufactured prior to June 1947 and has been significantly altered from its natural raw state for jewellery, adornment, art, utility or musical instrument before that date, a CITES certificate is not required (then is only true for material that has been “worked” before 1947, and has been transformed from its natural state by human craft).
