Default Recent CITES change?

I just now read this online, posted 11 hours ago:

"At the latest CITES meeting just two weeks ago, after many years, the restriction on rosewoods for musical instruments was lifted...comes into effect in about 90 days. Until then, better to hold off on the Blackwood and Ebony."

Is this true?

''A highly anticipated discussion on rosewood trees centered on the exemption of musical instruments from CITES controls. Since CoP17 in 2016, the CITES Parties and the extended family have considered the appropriateness of exempting rosewood musical instruments and other finished items from CITES controls.

Secretary-General Ivonne Higuero said: “During three years of thoughtful discussions, CITES Parties needed to analyse the different kinds of commercial trade that had significant impact on the sustainability of the rosewood species. In classic CITES style, Parties demonstrated once again their shared spirit to find solutions for the most effective implementation of the Convention’s regulations, and as a result they have agreed to exempt rosewood musical instruments.”
