EUDR: The EU Deforestation Regulation

Keeping deforestation out of our supply chain

In a significant move to combat deforestation and forest degradation, companies trading in commodities such as cattle, cocoa, coffee, oil palm, rubber, soy, and wood, along with products derived from these, are mandated to adhere to rigorous due diligence within the supply chain.

The scope of this new regulation is therefore very large and influences a large amount of industries. This requirement ensures that the goods do not stem from deforestation, forest degradation, or breaches of local environmental and social laws post-December 31, 2020.

The EU Deforestation Regulation (EUDR) is a part of the EU’s broader environmental and social sustainability goals, put in place to protect wildlife and the future of our forests.

The Advantages of our EUDR Compliance System

The Deforestation Compliance System

The EUDR demands strict control and monitoring measures to ensure the safety of the world’s forests and wildlife. Every organization must uphold these standards for the sake of the planet and the protection of wildlife and human rights. Failure to do so will result in penalties and reputational damage to the organization.

Compliance Solutions has developed a system that can be integrated into our existing supply chain compliance system to make upholding these values as easy and as diligent as possible.

Enforcement and Penalties

Protecting the EU Deforestation Regulations Integrity

Member states are tasked with enforcing the EU Deforestation Regulation (EUDR) through regular, often unannounced checks, with the authority to demand immediate remedial actions for non-compliance risks. Companies must submit a due diligence report before placing their product on the market, thereby assuming responsibility for compliance under penalty threats. Penalties for non-compliance include:

  • fines up to 4% of the company’s EU turnover from the preceding year
  • confiscation of non-compliant products
  • temporary exclusion from public procurement processes and public funding
  • a temporary ban on dealing with those items in the EU

Private parties also have the right to raise concerns and act as whistleblowers if necessary.

Compliance and Due Diligence

How the EU Deforestation Regulation Protects Wildlife

Companies are obligated to provide a due diligence statement, demonstrating that there is no more than a negligible risk of non-compliance with the regulation.

In these statements, they have to provide evidence that their products are deforestation-free. That term refers to products, not produced on land that was converted from natural forest to agricultural use post-December 31, 2020.

Additionally, products derived from or involving wood must not contribute to forest degradation, a process, that entails the conversion of naturally regenerating forests into plantation forests or other wooded land used for agriculture.

Through that, the EU hopes to preserve the world’s natural forests and to protect essential biodiversity from harmful industries.

Legal and Illegal Practices

Redefining Global Standards

The EU Deforestation Regulation (EUDR) targets not only illegal activities such as unauthorized logging but also processes that are considered legal in the countries where the products are produced.

A large part of international deforestation is technically legal under local laws, which made regulation difficult in the past. Now, if a company wants to place their products in EU markets, they have to comply with EU regulations, regardless of how the law stands in the country of production.

But it also mandates compliance with local social and environmental laws in the areas of production, placing the onus on companies introducing products into the EU market to ensure adherence to these rules.
