Assessment of timber certification systems to the Dutch procurement criteria

  • Assessment

    TPAC assesses timber certification systems and advises the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Watermanagement (I&W) on the outcome. The objective of the Committee is to facilitate the government’s commitment to procure 100% sustainable timber. Next to a set of clear 'Procurement Criteria for Timber' which have been developed with Dutch stakeholders, TPAC has distinct procedures to ensure that its assessments are transparent, reliable and verifiable.
