Summary:

Regulation (EU) 2023/1115 - adopted by the co-legislators on 31 May 2023 - aimed at tackling deforestation and forest degradation driven by the European Union (EU). It repeals Regulation (EU) No 995/2010. This is a text with EEA relevance.

Further information:

Regulation (EU) No 995/2010 - also known as EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) - prohibits illegally harvested timber from being placed on the EU market, and sets out preconditions for the marketing of timber and timber products in the EU. This is part of a wider legislative framework which the European Commission considered to only partially address deforestation.

This Regulation replaces the previous legislative framework. It lays down rules regarding the placing and making available on EU's market, as well as the export from the EU of relevant products, that contain, have been fed with or have been made using relevant commodities, with a view to minimising the EU's contribution to deforestation and forest degradation worldwide, and reducing the EU's contribution to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and global biodiversity loss.

The draft law was adopted by the European Commission on 17 November 2021. The Council of the European Union adopted its general approach on 28 June 2022. The plenary of the European Parliament adopted a negotiating position on 13 September. An informal agreement between the co-legislators on a compromise text for this file was reached on 5 December. This was formally endorsed by the Parliament on 19 April 2023 and by the Council on 16 May. The Act was signed by the co-legislators on 31 May 2023 and published in the Official Journal on 9 June 2023.
