The Timber and Timber Products Placing on the Market Regulations (UKTR) and UK FLEGT Regulations apply in Great Britain from 1 January 2021 but the requirements remain the same as the previous European Timber Regulation (EUTR).
Timber imported from countries that have implemented VPAs with the UK – currently only Indonesia – must be accompanied by a FLEGT license. Importers should obtain these from the supplier and submit them to OPSS at email@example.com for verification before the customs declaration is made. This submission may be made on behalf of the operator by a third party, such as an agent or freight forwarder. Once verified, the relevant timber is considered legal, removing the obligation to exercise due diligence.
-Vendors must send a draft FLEGT license to EUImportCompliance@urbn.com before they submit the official license to their government for stamping. URBN will check the license to make sure everything matches what is in Tradestone. Once vendor receives approval from URBN, they can submit the license to their government.
-Vendor should be listing our Tradestone vendor style numbers on the license.
-Vendor must include the government stamped license with the shipping documents to the forwarder.
