Timber and wood import and export

The import web pages and the import guide ‘Importing wood, wood products and bark - Requirements for landing controlled material into Great Britain from non-EU countries’ are currently being updated to take account of new landing requirements for certain species of wood depending on the country of origin. Until the web pages are updated the changes can be viewed in the Plant Health Newsletter Issue No. 35 dated December 2016

If wood material or products are not classed as regulated there are no restrictions to their movement.
