Timber Legality: EU Awareness
FSC EU National Offices work to clarify to members, stakeholders and public authorities what is at stake with the EU Timber Regulation and how FSC assists with compliance.

Others have also organised information meetings with stakeholders, such as in the Portugal and the UK, or take part in future meetings (Luxembourg, 7 February).

Outside the EU several FSC National Offices take part in discussions and information activities related to the EU Timber Regulations and its external impacts, as well as on the US Lacey Act and/or the Australian Act.

  • FSC USA works with other organisations to defend and support the US Lacey Act, see the following newsitem 
  • FSC Australia has been deeply involved in the discussions leading to the Australian Act, and will be involved in the follow up work on enforcement rules.
