This workshop is conducted as part of the project ‘LIFE Legal Wood’ aimed at supporting timber-related companies in Europe with knowledge, tools and training in the requirements of the EU Timber Regulation. Knowing your timber’s origin is not only good for the forests but good for business. The project is funded by the EU LIFE programme.
