Code of Conduct
IN ORDER TO DEMONSTRATE A COMMITMENT TO THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF PRODUCT QUALITY AND SUSTAINABILITY TO THEIR CUSTOMERS, ALL OF OUR MEMBERS MUST FOLLOW THE TTF CODE OF CONDUCT.

The TTF acts as the guardian of timber product standards, quality, sustainability and legal compliance. Our members are often first placers in the market. As such, they have a duty of care to their downstream customers in the supply chain.

 

All members sign up to the TTF Code of Conduct, meaning that they are committed to ensuring all the products they sell are fit for purpose, are high quality and in compliance with the latest national and international market standards and regulations.

 

Buying from a TTF Member means buying timber you can trust.

Policy & Market Advice

We offer advice and in-depth information sheets on UK and international timber policies, political developments and market intelligence.

Supply Chain Management

We have developed a number of risk management tools and information services to support the implementation of responsible purchasing policies and codes of conduct.

Member discounts are available.
