In order to better control the real legality of the supply chain Wood Paper Forest Management, the Timber Regulation introduces a requirement for companies to implement practices of Due Diligence requiring the sector operators (who first places a product on the market EU ) to apply specific procedures of analysis and risk management in order to minimize the likelihood of import and marketing of products of illegal origin and, at the same time allowing access to information to ensure product traceability made of wood and its derivatives.
The Due Diligence must be applied by the same operator, even through specific technical support or help from a Control Body .
