Report presented on 18 February 2019 by the European Commission on the adoption of delegated acts under Regulation (EU) No 995/2010 laying down the obligations of operators who place timber and timber products on the market.

Further information:

Regulation (EU) No 995/2010 (the EU Timber Regulation) prohibits the placing on the market of illegally harvested timber or products derived from such timber. The Regulation was adopted in December 2010 and entered into application in March 2013.

Article 15(1) of the Regulation stipulates that the power to adopt delegated acts shall be conferred on the Commission for a period of seven years from December 2010 and requires the Commission to submit a report in respect of the delegated powers every three years.


The EU Timber Regulation is part of a broad set of measures introduced by the FLEGT Action Plan, which is the EU’s comprehensive response to the pervasive problem of illegal logging and its devastating impact on forests. It also contributes to reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation as well as to the conservation role of forests, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks in developing countries.
