THE CITES ARTICLE 8 (3b) DEROGATIONThe article 8 (3b) derogation -Council Regulation (EC) No 338/97, the so-called "antique derogation”, and the article 62 -Council Regulation (EC) No 865/2006, allow to sell this kind of item (defined as pre-1947)within the European Union.Current legislation states thatif 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 (therefore only for material that has been “worked” before 1947, and has been transformed from its natural state by human craft)
