Congratulations to DASSO!
The EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) came into effect in March 2013, with the aim of preventing sales of illegal timber and timber products in the EU market. Now, any actor who places timber or timber products on the market for the first time must ensure that the timber used has been legally harvested and, where applicable, exported legally from the country of harvest.
Bureau Veritas China confirms that appropriate due diligence process has been performed through a BV DDS Risk Assessment for the following products: DASSO EXTERIOR BAMBOO, DASSOXTR, DASSOCTECH, DASSO INDOOR BAMBOO, DASSO ECOSOLID BAMBOO, AND DASSO BAMBOO PANEL
The EUTR is relevant to thousands of companies of all sizes that are producing timber domestically or importing timber into the EU. It covers a wide range of timber products, including plywood, veneer, furniture, and paper (except its recycled components and printed media) and comprises three main obligations:
1. Timber accompanied by a Forest Law Enforcement, Governance, and Trade (FLEGT) or Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) license will be accepted as legal. In all other cases, operators must exercise due diligence when they introduce imported and domestic timber or timber products on the EU market;
2. It prohibits the placing of illegally-harvested timber, and products made from illegally-harvested timber, on the EU market, whether the timber is of domestic or imported origin; and
3. Traders (those after the operators in the supply chain) need to keep records of their suppliers and customers (except end consumers). In this way, the operators can always be traced.
