EU timber regulation briefing note
2011 | Proforest
In March 2013 the requirements of the EU Timber Regulation will come into force. This new legislation prohibits placing timber on the EU market if it was illegally harvested. To achieve this, it sets out procedures which those trading timber within the EU must put in place to minimise the risk of illegal timber being sold. This Briefing Note provides practical advice on how to meet the regulation in practice.
