Do you deal in wood?

Have you heard? On 3 March 2013, an EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) comes into effect to stop the circulation of illegally logged wood in the European Union.

Under the EUTR, placing illegally harvested timber and products derived from such timber on the EU market is prohibited. The Regulation applies to wood and wood products being placed for the first time on the EU market.
