I'm thinking of buying a neck from Stewmac which has a rosewood board, will it be subject to CITES, and if so, who is responsible, the seller or the buyer?

I think I read somewhere that CITES has been relaxed on finished musical instruments and parts, does anyone know for sure?

Have you asked StewMac..? They normally reply swiftly to questions; first call, maybe..?

Apparently it's the buyer's responsibility, but I'm still a bit confused because I came across this which clearly states that a guitar is now exempt, but what about a finished neck?

"As of November 26 2019, CITES laws on rosewood have been lifted. Travelling with this wood no longer requires a permit. It means you can buy, sell and move freely with guitars made of rosewood"

That is what I thought, except Brazilian rosewood, which is permanently banned from crossing borders.
