More dates for Timber Regulation Workshops – by UK Competent Authority (OPSS)

The Office for Product Safety & Standards (OPSS) is the Competent Authority responsible for enforcing Timber Regulation 995/2010 in the UK.

The UK Timber Regulation requires those businesses (operators) first placing a product on the UK market to complete due diligence that concludes negligible risk of illegally harvested timber entering the supply chain. This includes carrying out a risk assessment and where appropriate completing mitigating measures that reduce any identified risk to negligible.

To assist businesses to comply with the UK Timber Regulation after the UK leaves the EU, OPSS will be at stand (T110) at the Timber Expo in the UK Construction Week Birmingham (8th – 10th October 2019) to share information and answer questions. A series of seminars will be delivered specifically for businesses who import timber products from the European Union, who are not currently required to undertake due diligence, but following EU Exit may be required to comply with these regulations.
