Dear Madam,

 

Thank you for your e-mail dated 09 August 2019 and for your further e-mail

enabling us to register your request.

We hereby acknowledge receipt of your application for access to documents,
which was registered on 09 August 2019  under reference number GestDem

Dear Ms Duncan,

Subject:       Your application for access to documents – Ref GestDem No
2019/4644

We refer to your e-mail dated 09/08/2019 in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on 09/08/2019 under the above mentioned
reference number.

On the basis of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, you request access to:

“The number of live non-domesticated animals imported to the UK from EU
and non-EU states for the exotic pet trade in each of the past 5 years
(2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018), held on the Trade Control and Expert
System (TRACES) database, or held otherwise. Please provide data if
available, including stated purpose (commercial, zoo, etc.), species (or
lowest available taxonomic category), country of origin, country from
where consigned, and source (wild-caught, captive-bred, ranched etc.)”

We would like to inform you that, for the animals mentioned in your
application, it is not obligatory to accompany their movements by a
certificate issued in the TRACES system. This means that data possibly
present in the TRACES database do not show the full scale of the trade.
Therefore, any data which we could provide you, would be insufficient to
form an accurate and complete picture of the import of live
non-domesticated exotic pet animals from EU and non-EU countries.

Furthermore, we must inform you that we do not have data about the stated
purpose or the source of the non-domestic animals concerned by your
request.

We therefore invite you, pursuant to Article 6(2) of Regulation (EC) No
1049/2001 regarding public access to documents, to inform us if you are
still interested in the partial data we have.

If you need assistance in clarifying or specifying your application, you
can contact us:

·       by email to: [1][email address] and
[email address]

In accordance with Article 2, third paragraph of the Implementing Rules to
Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001[2]^^[1], the 15 working days time limit for
handling your application will start running when we receive the requested
clarifications.

Thank you in advance for your understanding.
