Legally harvested and traded timber

The Home Quality Mark One, Technical Manual SD239, England, Scotland & Wales, published by BRE in 2018 states that:

‘HQM follows the UK Government's definition of ‘legally harvested and traded timber’, as outlined in the Central Point of Expertise on Timber (CPET) 5th Edition report (108) on the UK Government Timber Procurement Policy. To be considered ‘legally harvested and traded timber’ all sources of timber used on a project assessed under the HQM scheme must fulfil the requirements set out by CPET available from: www.gov.uk/guidance
