FAQ of the European Union Deforestation Regulation (EUDR)

Dear esteemed MFC members,

As you all know, the European Union Deforestation Regulation (EUDR) has come into force since June 29, 2023. Nevertheless, several clauses in the legislation will only come into force on December 30, 2024 (non-SME) and June 30, 2025 (for SMEs) respectively.

To ease your understanding, the EU has released a set of Frequently-Asked- Questions (FAQ) touching on the common issues associated with the EUDR.

Among some of the major issues to take note from the FAQ are such as:

1) Geolocations are required to be provided (Can be done via mobile phone or digital apps);

2) For plots of land under 4 hectares, a polygon or single point of latitude and longitude of 6 decimal digits can be provided;

3) For plots of land over 4 hectares, a polygon containing 6 decimal digits to describe the land shall be used;

4) Operators are required to trace every relevant commodity back to its plot of land;

5) The relevant commodity CANNOT be of unknown origin or without trace;

6) If the relevant commodity cannot be proven its authenticity, then the operator should refrain from placing the product in the EU market;

According to the definition of the EU, SME are companies which do not exceed the limit of two of the following three criteria below:

a) Balance sheet: EURO 20,000,000

b) Net Turnover: EURO 40,000,000

c) Average number of employees during financial year: 250

For further information, kindly view the attachment provided. MFC urges all members to comply with the regulation prior to exporting to the European market.
