A new phase in the fight against illegal logging

The demand for timber and timber products is increasing worldwide. 20 to 40% of all timber imported into Europe is derived from illegal logging.

The European Union could no longer remain unaware of these market-disturbing practices. After long deliberations the European Parliament and the Council approved a Regulation in 2010 that prohibits the importation of illegally-logged timber. The EU Timber Regulation enters into force on 3 March 2013.
