The Pulp and Paper Sector: Workshop for EU Competent Authorities and other Stakeholders

National Measurement Office,, London, United Kingdom

This two-day workshop was organized by Forest Trends and Chatham House and hosted at the National Measurement Office in London. It followed a series of thematic Chatham House meetings on the EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) and brought together European and US enforcement authorities to explore technical challenges to effective implementation of the EUTR and Lacey Act in the pulp and paper sector. The agenda included presentations scoping the nature and dimensions of the global trade in pulp and paper products, legal and illegal modalities in the sector, and practical experience from companies assessing their supply chains with a view to regulatory compliance. Background papers on the paper sector in China and Indonesia were prepared and presented by Forest Trends researchers, and a particular focus was given to the issue of validating legality in forest conversion for pulp plantations in Indonesia.
