Acorn Packaging Services Ltd are dedicated to reducing waste, saving energy and using timber and plywood sourced from legally well-managed Forests, therefore minimising the impact we may have on the environment.
The European Timber Regulation (EUTR) came into force on the 3rd March 2013. This is an important consideration for all Companies that deal with Timber and Timber-based products such as Plywood and other Panel Products made of timber. The aim of the regulation is to ensure that all timber based products imported into the EU do not contain illegally sourced timber.
Failure to comply with the EUTR will mean that penalties may be incurred by the importing Company which could involve confiscation of the products and/or financial penalties such as fines. Acorn Packaging Services Ltd recognises the importance of the EUTR and agrees with the aims of its introduction. Under the EUTR guidelines Acorn Packaging Services ltd would be classified as a “Trader” and it would be our responsibility to carry out the necessary “due diligence” to reduce the risk of illegal wood being used.
