NEPCon is developing the training under an EU-funded small- and medium-sized enterprises training Project. The goal of this project is to ensure consistent implementation of the EU Timber Regulation among the European Union’s thousands of small- and medium-sized enterprises.

The project package contains over 40 national risk assessments devolved by forest legality experts that provide detailed risk information about timber-exporting countries. In addition, user-friendly tools on using the risk data, understanding the EUTR requirements and setting up a proper due diligence system are on the way. Forest legality experts will share all this with you in training courses where you can get expert support in setting up your own due diligence system.

The project’s package of training and support will be offered free of charge in 2017 in 12 EU states; Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Holland, Poland, Portugal, Rumania, Hungary and Spain.
