FAQ: Do the Rainforest Alliance and FSC comply with the European Union’s timber regulations?

The Rainforest Alliance provides valuable services to companies that wish to develop and implement a due diligence system and  to producers who wish to supply companies within the European Union. This is done through our FSC and timber legality services, tools that companies can use to access the risks of illegality.

Both the FSC standards and the Rainforest Alliance’s legality standards have been revised to align with the requirements of the EUTR. For more information, see the FSC website, or the Rainforest Alliance business site.
