Info-brief: EUTR enforcement in Belgium

The EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) is implemented in each Member State via national legislation and enforced by national authorities. This means that differences exist in penalty regimes and enforcement practices. It also means that the opportunities for EU (and non-EU) civil society to support enforcement differ.

Here we provide key information on the Belgian implementing legislation for the EUTR, as well as top-line information on the enforcement approach in Belgium as of July 2017. This document is designed as a first point of reference – not a comprehensive source of information. It will be updated as new information becomes available.
