Bureau Veritas Certification has developed a due diligence system designed to fulfill the requirements of the EUTR (European Union Timber Regulation), no more and no less, in a cost effective manner.
Our dedicated due diligence system ensures you can import or market your forest, timber and wood products with peace of mind knowing you are in full compliancewith the European regulation.
Our auditors evaluate your products and suppliers, based on our technical procedures and their local expertise.
The Bureau Veritas Solution:
All of our procedures can be efficiently implemented. Our objective is to take out the administrative burden so you can focus on running your business.
Bureau Veritas Certification has developed an online traceability platform in collaboration with key actors in the supply chain. This web platform is a credible and reliable referencing system.
The aim of this platform is to connect companies trading timber and timber derived products to enable a thorough due diligence and efficient sourcing process for all actors.
On this database, all relevant information required for demonstrating compliance of your organization with legal requirements is being safely recorded.
Product origin and compliance of suppliers is monitored throughout your supply chain.
You can access in real-time, 24 hours a day and seven days a week, the status of your suppliers’ conformity.
As an independent body, Bureau Veritas Certification guarantees confidentiality of information.
Once the result of the due diligence is recorded, your organization, or your supplier, will be referenced in our system.
As a buyer, you can then access information on compliant suppliers and products.
As a supplier, you can market your products to new potential clients.
OLB / FSC / PEFC certifications or second party audits can be integrated with the risk mitigation actions of the Bureau Veritas Certification Timber Due Diligence system.
