The EU Timber Regulation (EUTR), the U.S. Lacey Act, and Australia’s Illegal Logging Prohibition Act (ILPA) require companies to perform due diligence to ensure that the timber they’re buying is of sustainable and legal provenance.
Sweden set a legal precedent in 2016 by prosecuting an importer of teak from Myanmar under the EUTR following an investigation that found the company could not produce adequate chain of custody documentation, including who harvested the timber or where it was cut.
