The FLEGT licence information point explains what FLEGT licences are and how they can benefit businesses in the EU as well as timber producers in countries outside the EU. It includes answers to dozens of frequently asked questions that cover everything from the basics to complex trade scenarios and how to report any problems.

It includes details of FLEGT Competent Authorities in each EU Member State, and provides information for importers and other traders of FLEGT-licensed products in the EU. A section devoted to Indonesia, the first country to begin FLEGT licensing, describes the country’s timber legality assurance system (SVLK), FLEGT licensing procedures and FLEGT-licensed products.

The website also provides definitions, terms of use, and advice for branding and communicating accurate, coherent information about FLEGT licences.
