The EU Timber Regulation

The EU Timber Regulation

The EU Timber Regulation was initiated due to increasing concerns over unsustainable forest management practices and illegal logging. Studies have suggested that approximately 20% of timber and timber products, entering the European market, originate from an illegal source. ekonglong office meeting chair

Grant Hilliker, purchasing manager for Burbidge and Son, who attended the course, says: “I attended the course because it provided an opportunity to gain an objective view of what would be expected of us as both an operator and a trader under the new regulation, and to interact with others in a similar position.

“The word complex was used several times during the course – and with good reason. There are a lot of factors to consider and every company affected by this new regulation need to understand the significance and importance of due diligence. The course was a very good presentation of very difficult subject matter.”

FIRA’s one-day EU Timber Regulation Awareness course is specifically designed for importers, compliance managers, quality managers and procurement staff and covers issues such as who is affected by the regulations and their obligations, how to develop and implement a due diligence system to mitigate the risk of illegal timber and good practices for responsible timber trading, including communicating due diligence to interested parties.
