At Danzer UK we undertake a robust due diligence system on all timber products we purchase.This process has achieved NEPCon LegalSouce certification which demonstrates our due diligence system conforms with UKTR requirements.
Any wood product that Danzer imports into the UK is subject to the Danzer Due Diligence Process to assure legality based on all information available.
Danzer UK are signatories of the UK Timber Trade Federation's Responsible Purchasing Policy (RPP) since its inception. The RPP is an acknowledged due diligence tool within which we can identify and eliminate the risk of illegal timber entering our supplier chain.
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.
