Market requirements for legal and sustainable timber
J Lam, A Cura | 2010 | Proforest
This report provides information for anyone involved in the timber trade on the emerging market requirements for legal timber and sustainable timber products, with the main focus on the EU market but also considering the US and elsewhere. We included a particular focus on the implications for Chinese suppliers as China is one of the biggest manufacturers of timber products. This report aims to help companies involved in the timber trade understand the different requirements and evidence of compliance required by legislation, public and private procurement policies and other initiatives, allowing companies to be prepared to meet these requirements.
(Proforest also produced a report on review of timber legality verification schemes which examines the extent to which the different legality verification schemes meet the market requirements. To see this report please follow the link on the right hand side.)
