CITES was signed in Washington in 1973. The Convention has binding international character. It has at present 166 member states. The CITES approach is based on the states themselves assuming responsibility for the protection and sustainable use of species on their territory in order to ensure that the trade in protected species and their products does not have an adverse effect on the survival of these species. Since April 1998 all species of sturgeon have been listed in Annex II and in Annex I of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species and, therefore, governed by its regulations. Given the intensive controls and strict provisions of CITES, the illegal trade in caviar has fortunately dwindled. The transparent and proper documentation of trade products also makes a major contribution to protecting and preserving the endangered species.
