Timber Regulation Enforcement Exchange: Chinese Supply Chains, Risk, and Legal Compliance
April 14, 2015 - April 16, 2015
This three-day event brought together enforcement officials involved with the EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) and US Lacey Act as part of an ongoing series of workshops encouraging collaboration and effective implementation of forest product legal trade legislation. The sessions were focused on China, and covered trade data analysis of Chinese imports from high-risk regions and Chinese exports to the EU and US, and included discussions of the tracking of raw materials through Chinese supply chains and appropriate due diligence in this context.
