Timber Due Diligence Workshops
From 1 January 2018, businesses and individuals who import regulated timber products into Australia, or who process domestically grown raw logs, may face penalties for breaches of the due diligence requirements.
The Regulation requires that prior to importation all regulated timber products including furniture, furnishing, cabinetry, raw logs and components MUST undergo Due Diligence.
Importers need to establish that the product they are importing is a regulated timber product.
Processors must conduct Due Diligence on all domestically grown logs prior to processing those logs.
In these workshops, delegates will learn about the Regulation and be provided with practical details on HOW to undertake the due diligence process, which has these key components:
- Establish a documented due diligence system – PURCHASE the Due Diligence Toolkit Template for Importers HERE or PURCHASE the Due Diligence Toolkit Template for Processors HERE
- Information Gathering
- Risk Assessment
- Risk Mitigation
- Maintenance of records.
- Workshops are designed to assist Importers and Processors to better understand the Regulation and ensure that all legal requirements are met.
- International Suppliers may also request Workshops in International regions.
- Customs Brokers, and other allied service providers may also refer Importers or Processors to the training for the purpose of securing qualified documentation for the importation of timber products.
