Does Well, Could Do Better – EIA’s recommendations for the EU Timber Regulation ‘Fitness Check’

The European Commission (Directorate-General for the Environment) is currently conducting a ‘Fitness Check’ of its key regulations tackling the trade in illegal timber in Europe: the European Union Timber Regulation (EUTR) and Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) Regulation.

EIA’s position is that the EUTR and FLEGT Regulation are much-needed mechanisms to help to combat illegal logging and the associated trade that supports it.
