EU Timber Regulation

Get advice on compliance and the reporting you need to do.

EU Timber Regulation (EUTR)

In 2014 the EU Timber Regulation came into force. This classifies organisations that trade in timber and timber-related products as either operators or traders. Each have responsibilities including due diligence, access to information, risk assessment and risk mitigation.

Breaching the EUTR can result in hefty fines and damage your organisations reputation. Compliance can ensure you are not using illegal timber and reduce your impact on deforestation and other related sustainability impacts associated with logging.

Services and Experience

Totem Sustainability can identify whether you are an operator or a trader and help you set up the appropriate due diligence to ensure you comply with the law.

We have embedded EUTR compliance in Environmental and Chain of Custody Management Systems, collecting all information required for compliance.
