The European Timber Trade Federation (ETTF) promotes the interests of timber trade across Europe, representing key national federations for importers, merchants and distributors. The ETTF liaises with governmental bodies at national and international level, engages with NGOs and provides a discussion and networking forum for the EU timber trade on key issues, from legislation and the environment, to sustainable timber promotion and best practice.

ETTF launched a project aiming to create a central point of information on both timber industry and legislation, of which this website is the main result. The project received financial contributions of the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) and IDH’s European Sustainable Tropical Timber Coalition (STTC).
Form international, a Dutch consultancy firm, specialized in forest and plantation management and certification, is the technical partner implementing the project. For more information: www.forminternational.nl
