ETTF launches new website on international timber trade
International timber traders can now find information on forestry, legal timber trade, country requirements and export from timber producing countries. The overall objective is to enhance and facilitate legal trade in tropical timber.
The construction of the website has been supported by the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) and European Sustainable Tropical Timber Coalition (EU STTC). Information on industry and legality has been gathered from several available sources, such as the FAO and ITTO databases, and data from ITC / Tradecom. Form international, a Dutch consultancy firm specialised in forest and plantation management and certification, is in charge for the coordination and compilation of country profiles.
Visitors of the website are invited to add information or share their experience, using the review button on the country profiles. Also, Form international can be contacted directly at [email protected].
