FLEGT Competent Authorities

FLEGT Competent Authorities are the authorities in EU Member States responsible for verifying FLEGT licences, as set out in the EU FLEGT Regulation.

A list of FLEGT Competent Authorities in each Member State can be downloaded as a PDF file from the European Commission website

In many EU Member States, a single Competent Authority is responsible for both the EU Timber Regulation and the FLEGT Regulation. Other Member States divide responsibilities for implementing the EUTR and the FLEGT Regulation between two Competent Authorities.
