European countries should not stop purchasing Russian birch through China
Release date: August 5, 2022 source: Network
The Timber Trade Federation (TTF) recently issued an import warning to TTF members using birch plywood from the Far East. The warning said: the dispute between Russia and Ukraine has lasted for nearly six months, but there is little sign that the conflict between the two countries will end. And emphasized that even though grain exports have begun to recover, timber is still under export “sanctions”.
Ttf specifically mentioned the birch plywood on the market. Although Britain had imported a lot of birch plywood before the “sanctions”, they found that up to now, there are still suppliers in the wood industry importing birch plywood:
Tduk members reported an increase in birch plywood quotations from the Far East, especially China.
Ttf believes that birch forests are mainly concentrated in northern Russia and Eurasia, while natural birch in China is prohibited from cutting, and China has not implemented relevant “sanctions” against Russia. Therefore, TTF said: it is almost certain that the birch contained in the plywood they import actually comes from Russia.
Although these birch plywood are imported from China, the association said that it is illegal to import any wood originating from Russia and Belarus into the UK or EU countries.
This also means that any member or non member who imports birch plywood from outside the EU faces a high risk of violating the British system. In order to solve this problem, tduk is writing directly to organizations that supply birch plywood to let them know the sanctions of the United Kingdom and the European Union.如无特殊说明，文章均为本站原创，转载请注明出处。If there are no special instructions, the articles are original, if you want to use or reproduce, please indicate the original source www.plywoodinspection.com,If you find that our articles infringe on your copyrights and interests, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org in time and we will delete it at the first time.
