As presented in the STTC/Fair&Precious newsletter, ATIBT and LCB are currently participating with other European wood trade federations, Fedustria and TTF, in the implementation of a data collection tool on wood imports. Although the main donors are focusing on tropical regions, the tool will also cover softwoods, temperate hardwoods, panels and some secondary wood products.
The data collection tool is designed to be easy to use and allows companies to detail their purchases by type of product covered by certification schemes, regulatory systems (e.g. FLEGT) and legality verification systems.
