What is EU FLEGT?
In 2003, the European Commission initiated fight against illegal logging and illegal trade of wooden products by developing an action plan. This action plan is called FLEGT Action Plan. EU Timber Regulation and FLEGT license scheme are one of the several elements in the FLEGT Action Plan. The EU developed the FLEGT Action Plan as a response to rising international concerns about the social, economic and environmental impacts of illegal logging. Illegal timber means timber harvested or sold in violation of the national legislation in the country of origin. This may involve for example illegal felling, tax fraud or counterfeit customs documents.
