EU Deforestation Regulation (EUDR): Affected goods

published on

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. Companies that source the above-mentioned raw materials but are not the first to import them into the EU must also provide information and make inquiries of their upstream suppliers.
