Canada Wood is a joint initiative between the Canadian government and timber industry association partners representing producers in Canada, serving as a link to approximately 10% of the world’s forest area and to Canada’s wealth of timber and wood products.

EU Timber Regulations (EUTR):

The EUTR is to address the issue of illegal logging and places obligations on timber importers, classified as ‘operators’, to put in place a ‘due diligence system’ (DDS) in order to reduce the risk of importing illegally harvested timber into the EU.  The operator remains accountable at all times.

Environmental Product Decalration (EPD):

The Canadian Wood Council provides a full range of Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for all types of Canadian Wood. Click here to access this resource.

Canada Wood in the UK provides industry, trade, specifiers, designers and the public with the contacts and support that is available through our information, resources and marketing initiatives. We are always glad to advise enquirers about technical issues, souces of supply, product availability, grading, environmental matters and related topics.

The range of wood products from Canada is extensive, including unique softwood species, temperate hardwoods, each in the form of sawn timber, and almost everything from structural softwood grades right through to complete timber frame house packages! We have something for everyone, for today and tomorrow – and the Canada Wood programme is all about letting you know! Canada is committed to sustainable forest management, evidenced by more than more than 150 million hectares of forest independently certified to CSA, FSC and SFI standards, telling you that Canada Wood is here to stay.

Canada Wood demystifies the European Timber Regulation

December 2013

Canada Wood demystifies the European Timber Regulation

The EUTR prohibits the placing of 'illegally harvested' timber and products derived from such timber on the European market. It requires traders who place timber and wood products on the EU market for the first time to exercise 'due diligence', involving risk-analysis of the liklihood of importing illegally sourced material. Canada is viewed as being a low-risk country, and as-such an easy-option source of supply.

Further information appears on our website, via the link, and is available in hard-copy on request.
