EU Deforestation Regulation (EUDR)

published on
3.5.2024

The new EU regulation (EU Deforestation Regulation - EUDR), which came into force at the end of June 2023, aims to minimize the risk of products associated with deforestation, forest degradation and the illegal displacement of local populations entering the EU market. This is intended to promote demand for and trade in legal and deforestation-free raw materials and products.

Manufacturers, importers and traders who place affected raw materials such as wood, beef (meat/leather), rubber, soy, coffee, cocoa and palm oil and products/products made from these on the EU market for the first time must ensure that these originate from deforestation-free areas and that the applicable local legislation has been complied with. This requires documentation of the process and the provision of a due diligence declaration to the authorities.

Under the proposed EU regulation, companies are obliged to carry out due diligence to ensure that only products that are deforestation-free and legally produced reach the EU market. They must prove that the goods were not produced on areas that were deforested or degraded after December 31, 2020.
