TODD DOORS LTD RESPONSIBLE PURCHASING POLICY
We are fully committed to sourcing products from sustainable and well managed forests and as such have implemented a robust and well managed due diligence system under the European Union Timber Regulations (EUTR) which became law in March 2013.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
It is now illegal within the EU to source any timber products from factories that are not able to prove the origin of their timber.
In other words a factory has to be able to pass Todd Doors’ due diligence process firstly by showing the origin in which the timber was grown and prove that this forest has been certified against an internationally recognised standard for good forest management.
Secondly, the factory must demonstrate that they have actually purchased this timber. Thirdly they need to provide full documentary evidence of the movement of this timber from the forest to their factory and fourthly that the timber they have purchased is precisely what they have used in manufacturing our product.
HOW DO WE DO THIS?
Todd Doors seeks evidence from all factories of the supply chain as described above, which is called due diligence.
This evidence is then updated from all factories on a regular basis to make sure that compliance to this law is consistently maintained. Our Purchasing Department are fully conversant with EUTR and the legalities pertaining to purchasing our products from factories using well managed forests. We do not purchase products, under any circumstances, from factories that cannot or will not prove the origin of their timber.
HOW DOES THIS AFFECT YOU?
Many people are now quite understandably concerned about the origin of the products they are purchasing. You can be wholly confident that when purchasing a door through Todd Doors, this rigorous check has taken place and that all Todd Doors products comply with the European Union Timber Regulations.
