Legality and Certification

Everything you need to know

We go to great lengths to ensure our products come from legally harvested and well-managed forest or plantation resources.

 

Legality & Sustainability

Responsible purchasing is an essential core value of our business.

Throughout our business, Meyer work to the requirements of recognised Chain of Custody systems, which are a certified way of making sure that a product has come from a defined and sustainable source. The majority of our products are certified to ensure that they have been legally harvested from sustainably managed forests. All our product sources are appraised using detailed due diligence procedures to ensure that they meet the criteria for legality set by the United Kingdom Timber Regulation (UKTR).

We operate under two sets of globally recognised certification standards: Forest Stewardship Council ® (FSC®) and the Programme of Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes (PEFC™). Both of these schemes promote sustainable forest and plantation management by using product tracking processes.

Whilst legality is an absolute minimum requirement when working with new suppliers, preference is always given to those who can also demonstrate sustainability, as well as an ethical attitude that reflects our own.
