EU Timber Regulation

The EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) is an EU legislation that prohibits illegally harvested timber from being placed on the EU market. The EUTR sets out mandatory procedures for those trading in timber within the EU designed to minimise the risk of illegal timber being sold. It applies to both imported and domestically produced timber. The regulation governs the trade in timber products on the EU market and covers most timber products commonly traded. Compliance with this legislation is obligatory for all operators and traders concerned.

There are three key obligations:

  1. It is prohibited to place illegally sourced timber and products from illegally sourced timber on the EU market.
  2. EU traders and have to exercise “due diligence”, which means they have to actively make sure that no illegally sourced timber enters the EU common market.
  3. Keep records of suppliers and customers.
