EUTR Enforcement in the UK
The EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) is implemented in each Member State via national legislation and enforced by national authorities. This means that differences exist in penalty regimes and enforcement practices. It also means that the opportunities for EU (and non - EU) civil society to support enforcement differ. Here, we provide summary information on the EUTR in the UK as of September 2015. This document is designed as a first point of reference – not a comprehensive source of information.
We will be updating this brief as new information becomes available. To access the most up to date version, and to read our info-briefs on other EU Member States, please click here.
