The EU Timber Regulation implementation and enforcement updates

The EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) seeks to prevent illegally-harvested timber and timber products from being placed on the EU market. It is implemented in each EU Member State via national legislation (to access, see our map of EUTR Implementing Legislation).

As a result, differences exist in penalty regimes and enforcement practices in each Member State. These differences have a bearing on how the EUTR operates, and mean that the opportunities for EU (and non-EU) civil society to support enforcement differ.

ClientEarth is looking at how the EUTR has been implemented and is being enforced in each country, and has compiled info-briefings on selected Member States.

The info-briefings set out key details of each Member State’s implementing legislation and enforcement approach. They are designed as a first point of reference – not a comprehensive source of information, and will be updated as new information becomes available.

Should you be interested in a specific Member State that is not listed below, please contact us:
