McTear’s fully supports national and international work to stop ivory poachers and is committed to stamping out the trade in illegal ivory.
The law surrounding the sale of ivory is changing. Our understanding of the new legislation - The Ivory Prohibition Regulations 2022 - is that from 6 June 2022 trade in items of or containing ivory will be illegal unless the item falls into one of these categories:
Falling into one of the above categories allows the item to be considered for registration or for a certifcate of exemption.
The following are examples of artworks previously sold at McTear’s that will come under the ban.
