Sale of Ivory

April 09, 2013

As a responsible seller, Luke Honey Ltd works closely with Taxidermy and Wildlife Law consultants to keep up to date with the regulations on the trade in ivory and wildlife specimens at all time. Under current DEFRA regulations: "Antique worked specimens of ivory acquired in their finished worked state before 3 March 1947 are covered by antiques derogation (Article 62(3) of EC regulation 865/2006) and may be used commercially without a certificate."

If you have any questions about the export or sale of ivory or other items considered endangered, please contact Luke at info@lukehoney.co.uk
