Following the UK Timber Regulation, we obtain and evaluate:

  • all necessary information concerning the wood and wood products, such as country of harvest, species, quantity, details of the supplier and documentation or other information indicating compliance with the national legislation;
  • systematic assessment of the risk of illegal timber in the supply chain based on information identified above and taking into account all relevant criteria set out in the regulation;
  • implementation of risk mitigation measures and procedures if risk is identified, including requiring additional information or documents and/or requiring 3rd party verification. This specifically includes measures to exclude with a high probability the risks of falsified documents and certificates.

Ahead of any procurement commitment, a risk assessment establishes the level of potential legality risks that may arise from the respectiv wood species, country of origin, forest of origin, or supplier.

In case of potential risks, Danzer gives preference to procure goods supplied with an internationally acknowledged certificate confirming legality as a minimum requirement or preferably a confirmation of both legality and responsible forest management. Danzer verifies the correctness of all certificates.

If such certificates cannot be obtained, Danzer will either initiate its own audit procedures to verify legality or forego the proposed procurement.

The above provides the assurance you need that any timber product supplied by Danzer has been legally sourced.
