Working in partnership with NEPCon, the EUTR monitoring organisation, the service ensures DT Group can collect all information on their timber products and run a risk assessment of that data.
DT Group are the largest retailer and distributor of building materials in the Nordic region, with 250 stores serving consumers and professionals. DT Group source material from all over the world and therefore require a system that can accurately and efficiently gather data on their products’ sources in order to meet relevant legislation.
Global Traceability’s RADIX Tree simplifies the data collection process, connecting suppliers to their client on an online platform. Suppliers receive simple to understand information templates to complete and the data is then accessible to DT Group on the platform.
Supporting the risk assessment process are NEPCon’s LegalSource experts, who can also advise and assist on risk mitigation procedures. This service meets the three core due diligence requirements of the EU Timber Regulation – access to information, risk assessment and risk mitigation – in the most time and cost efficient manner.
