Online Tool Launched for Travel with Instruments Containing CITES-protected Species

Earlier this month, Pearle Live Performance Europe and the International Federation of Musicians announced the launch of their joint website “Traveling with Musical Instruments in Compliance with CITES Rules.”

The site includes questions to help musicians and music ensembles prepare touring activities with musical instruments containing CITES-protected species. The objective is to help users determine whether a CITES Musical Instrument Certificate (MIC) is required when crossing international borders with their musical instruments for non-commercial purposes, such as concerts and other live performance events, competitions, teaching and recording. Musicians, orchestras and other music groups can also identify steps to be taken before their departure.
