Apply for an exemption for the commercial use of protected animals, plants and their products

If you want to sell animals, plants or products of a strictly protected species or use them commercially, you must first apply for a marketing permit from the responsible authority.

Important notes

Prerequisites

You must be able to prove the legal origin of the animal, plant or their products.

When handling live animals, the legal minimum requirements for keeping conditions must be met.

Documents required

  • written Application
  • Proof of legal origin, such as
    • Witness statement
    • Declaration of an oath
    • photos
    • The invoice
    • Appraise
  • Information about identification (ring number, transponder, photo, breeding certificate)

Please note

You can find a list of all strictly protected animals and products in the database of the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation.

Even if all legal requirements are met, you have no right to have the permit issued. The responsible authority decides on each individual case at its own discretion. If you are rejected, you have legal recourse.

Species that are particularly protected are subject to reporting requirements. This means that you must report any entry, exit or loss of a specially protected animal in writing to the responsible authority.

No. However, you must have approval before you start marketing.
