Safeguarding the environment
We are very aware of the importance of ensuring that our suppliers obtain their timber from sustainably managed forest resources. Such resources ensure that timber remains one of the most renewable, natural and environmentally friendly of standard building materials. For this reason we are suppliers of FSC certified timber.
The UK Timber Regulation was implemented on the 1st of January 2021 to replace the EU Timber Regulation after Brexit. The UKTR is broadly similar to the EUTR in that it curbs the trade of illegal timber entering the UK/Europe.
What is UK timber regulation?
Timber supply chains are regulated to ensure harvesting practices are legal, encourage sustainable harvesting practices and support global forest governance. Businesses trading in timber and timber products must take steps to ensure that they originate from legal sources. At Chilworth Timber we follow all of the regulations some of which include ensuring that all of our Timber is purchased from FSC certified suppliers and ensuring records are retained regarding the purchase and sale of our timber.
