Clarification Re: UPS Shipments with Rosewood to U.S.
September 13, 2017
If a shipment is moving under a CITES Permit which has been properly signed and validated prior to export, and it contains a combination of both FWS-type commodities (example, Mother of Pearl) AND rosewood or other wood products that require a CITES permit, then the shipment will be cleared in the US by FWS (U.S. Fish and Wildlife). These shipments are not restricted and can be shipped via UPS.
U.S. NAMM members that import rosewood only as part of manufacturing, assembling or fabricating of instruments should refer to the following links:
