The sixth and final template in the current series of support documents is now available to members, with a focus on the UK Timber Regulation.

Since 1 January 2021, the UK Timber Regulation (UKTR) prohibits the sale of illegally harvested timber and timber products in GB and creates legal obligations for those organisations first placing these products on the market to exercise due diligence.
