The objective of this series of practical guides is to summarise the main documents that need to be collected, and how to interpret them, in order to conduct due diligence of timber consignments to be imported from different countries into the US and European markets. It also provides a summary of the main risks associated with timber legality that the due diligence must address, for different countries. To date, BVRio published two guides. The first one assesses Brazil and Ghana, the second one assesses Liberia.
