Did you know that Sweden's legislation against illegally harvested timber is among the EU's most stringent? The purpose of the European Union Timber Regulation is to counter illegal logging and trade in such timber in the EU. Among other things, it regulates how teak may be harvested and governs its traceability back to the plantations where it was grown. It also requires that the entire chain from harvesting to import into the EU is secure and that no illegal teak can be imported. The Swedish Forest Agency carries out ongoing checks on the industry's operators. All wood in Brafab's products complies with Swedish timber regulations.
