On 3rd March 2013 the EU Timber Regulations came into effect which prohibits the placing of illegally harvested timber onto the EU market.
The regulations define two distinct types of participants in the timber market; operators and traders.
Operators are those who first place timber products on the EU market and are required to exercise 'due diligence'.
Traders are those who buy or sell timber and timber products already on the market and are required to keep information about their suppliers and customers to make timber easily traceable.
Severn Valley Woodworks is both an Operator and a Trader and exercise due diligence to make sure timber has been legally harvested.
