Our Timber Services

Demonstrate EUTR compliance by outsourcing due diligence to our global network of experts

Bureau Veritas Certification has developed a due diligence system designed to fulfill the requirements of the EUTR (European Union Timber Regulation), no more and no less, in a cost effective manner.

Our dedicated due diligence system ensures you can import or market your forest, timber and wood products with peace of mind knowing you are in full compliance with the European regulation.

Bureau Veritas  DDS is not a product certification. On-product labels including information related to a Bureau Veritas DDS statement are totally forbidden. The Bureau Veritas DDS statement should only be considered in combination with the related Bureau Veritas DDS report and relevant evidence collected as part of the risk assessment covering a specific scope as indicated on the statement. The Bureau Veritas DDS statement on its own does not ensure negligible risk.

Bureau Veritas Certification assesses risk and provides risk mitigation solutions

Our auditors evaluate your products and suppliers, based on our technical procedures and their local expertise.

The Bureau Veritas Solution:

  • Gathers information on the species, place of harvest and legality of timber product 
  • Verifies and analyses illegality risk
  • Identifies risk level and implements risk mitigation measures


All of our procedures can be efficiently implemented. Our objective is to take out the administrative burden so you can focus on running your business.

Bureau Veritas Certification Timber Regulatory Due Diligence Solution

Discover our unique traceability platform specific to the timber industry

Bureau Veritas Certification has developed an online traceability platform in collaboration with key actors in the supply chain. This web platform is a credible and reliable referencing system.

The aim of this platform is to connect companies trading timber and timber derived products to enable a thorough due diligence and efficient sourcing process for all actors.

On this database, all relevant information required for demonstrating compliance of your organization with legal requirements is being safely recorded.

Product origin and compliance of suppliers is monitored throughout your supply chain.

You can access in real-time, 24 hours a day and seven days a week, the status of your suppliers' conformity.

As an independent body, Bureau Veritas Certification guarantees confidentiality of information.

Access to a network of compliant suppliers

Once the result of the due diligence is recorded, your organization, or your supplier, will be referenced in our system.

As a buyer, you can then access information on compliant suppliers and products.

As a supplier, you can market your products to new potential clients.
