Gateway to international timbertrade

Supporting growth, transparency and diversification of international timber trade

This web portal is an answer of the European Timber Trade Federation (ETTF) to the numerous questions timber traders have when it comes to legal timber trade, due diligence, country requirements and export. It serves as a central information point, where you can find country profiles on both timber industry and legislation of producer countries, mainly located in tropical Africa, Asia and Latin America. All published profiles have undergone expert review.

The construction of this website has been supported by the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) and European Sustainable Tropical Timber Coalition (EU STTC) and builds upon knowledge gathered and published by several organisations and institutions.
