New guidebook released

New

Compact information about the European Timber Regulation (EUTR) and the Thünen Centre of Competence on the Origin of Timber can be found in the newly published guide "Trading Wood and Wood Products Legally".

(© Thünen-Institut)

  • What due diligence do market participants have?
  • How does the anatomical determination of wood species work?
  • In which types of wood can the origin be genetically recognized?
  • How does the EUTR affect timber merchants and timber markets?

These and other questions are clearly explained in the 32-page brochure (in German). The guidebook in DIN A5 format can be obtained free of charge from the secretariat of the Centre of Competence (holzherkuenfte@  thuenen.de) or as a PDF file (in German).
