Relaxation of import/export restrictions
Switzerland sees relaxation of import/export restrictions concerning some CITES-listed woods important for woodwinds.
The new regulations are in force per 1st of December 2019 and they concern (among other woods) African Blackwood and Rosewood, important woods for woodwinds. The regulations previously in effect for personal border traffic are now applied to shipped goods as well: permits or certificates are no longer required when shipping musical instruments made of African Blackwood, Rosewood, Palisander (Dalbergia spp. up to 10 Kg).
Please note that in other countries any adaptation of these regulations are not necessarily yet put into effect.
