EUTR aids responsible sourcing


The first analysis of purchases by Timber Trade Federation members since the EU Timber Regulation came into force found a significant improvement in the reductionof risk associated with buying timber, according to the TTF annual report on responsible sourcing.

The audited figures of TTF member purchases provide a risk profile for upwards of 70% of all timber imports to the UK and reveal a further reduction in the risk of purchasing illegally sourced timber and timber products.

The returns reveal that 92% of all purchases were of negligible or managed risk. The remaining 8.4% is assesed risk, of which 7.3% is low risk, 0.8% is medium risk and 0.3% is high risk.

The TTF sais improvements had been achieved against a backdrop of increased purchases of products traditionally percieved as higher risk, such as tropical hardwoods. The report also revealed that the proportion of certified FSC or PEFC material has risen from 87.1% in 2012 to 90.7% of all purchases in 2013.
