Timber Regulations

EU Transition Master Checklist

Businesses will need to take action when importing and exporting timber between UK and EU after the transition period.  

Apply due diligence to export/import timber from UK to EU to meet legal harvest requirements.  

If you import or export timber between the UK and EU/EEA, you may need to prove it’s been legally harvested from 1 January 2021. You’ll need to show imports from the EU and EEA to the UK have been legally harvested by carrying out due diligence checks. If you’re exporting timber to the EU or EEA, you may need to supply documentation about the source and legality of your timber. This is so EU and EEA-based customers can meet the EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) due diligence rules. Due diligence systems will vary business by business.
