Connection and exchange experiences with timber-related companies, trade associations, technical experts and relevant organisations from across Europe

Say the organisers, “”It’s been almost five years since the EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) came into force and things are looking quite different to how they did then.

Enforcement authorities are stepping up their game all over Europe, a lot of new information and tools are available from all kinds of sources and FLEGT licensed timber is now available on the market.

Nonetheless, living up to the EUTR requirements is still a challenge for companies across Europe. Therefore NEPCon would like to offer the industry, authorities as well as other stakeholders the opportunity to participate in a free international conference on 15th of March near London.”
