CITES is a very effective trade law around the EU as well as on an international basis. It does help with trade of exotic animals between countries as well as protects such animals from mistrade. Furthermore, continuous EU discussions have been directed towards countries to enhance their legality system as well as the 'control' of trade. The latter however is very difficult to do due to the different pathways that such exotic animals/plants or animal/plant merchandise enters the country.

CITES is very much debated even though it is set and followed by Nations. However public opinion is very biased towards their own sale or trade whether it is live animals or merchandise. Furthermore, even though CITES does protect endangered animals, such animals (including large exotic animals and plants), license and registration for keeping such within households are still being issues, assuming that the owners comply with regulation.
