Huhtamaki creates guide for the new EU timber regulation
EU Timber Regulation: What, when and how to comply? - to help customers understand the new timber regulation and what they need to do to make sure their businesses comply.
The new EU Timber Regulation No 995/2010 comes into force from 3 March 2013.
Once in force it will be an offence to place illegally harvested timber and timber products on the EU market. Failure to comply with the new legislation is likely to result in fines or even confiscation of illegal products by the authorities.
John Young, UK foodservice sales & marketing director, Huhtamaki UK, explained: "We understand that some customers may find the new EU Timber Regulation a daunting prospect. As a company, we are dedicated to offering our clients the highest levels of customer service, which is why we have developed this easy-to-use guide to the new regulation to assist compliance."
Customers are already expressing delight with the approach Huhtamaki has undertaken in providing information and insight into the implications of the new regulation.
