The exclusive purpose of this annotation is to allow international trade in fibre from vicuñas (Vicugna vicugna) and its derivative products, only if the fibre comes from the shearing of live vicuñas. Trade in products derived from the fibre can only take place in accordance with the following provisions:

Any person or entity processing vicuña fibre to manufacture cloth and garments must request authorization from the relevant authorities of the country of origin2 to use the "vicuña country of origin" wording, mark or logo adopted by the range States of the species that are signatories to the Convention for the Conservation and Management of the Vicuña.

2. Marketed cloth or garments must be marked or identified in accordance with the following provisions:

2.1 . . . . . .For international trade in cloth made from live-sheared vicuña fibre, whether the cloth was produced inside or outside the range States of the species, the wording, mark or logo must be used so that the country of origin can be identified. The VICUÑA [COUNTRY OF ORIGIN] wording, mark or logo should take on the form as described below:

The wording, mark or logo must appear on the reverse side of the cloth. In addition, the selvages of the cloth must bear the words VICUÑA [COUNTRY OF ORIGIN].

2.2 . . . . . .For international trade in garments made from live- sheared vicuña fibre, whether the garments were produced inside or outside the range States of the species, the wording, mark or logo indicated in paragraph
