We believe that independent certification according to internationally-recognised standards provides the best assurance that timber originates from responsible managed forests and that companies along supply chain operate in a responsible way.
Widely recognised as the “gold standard” for responsible forest management, FSC enjoys support from a broad range of leading businesses and NGOs. We recognise other schemes but preference FSC where possible.

Timber Development UK was formed in 2021 from the merger of two of the largest and longest established organisations in the supply chain, the Timber Trade Federation (TTF) and Timber Research and Development Association (TRADA). By bringing these two associations together, TDUK has become the largest; most comprehensive supply chain body in the UK, spanning from sawmill to specifier and all points in between. As an organisation, TDUK seeks to connect the supply chain, lead best practice, and accelerate a low-carbon future; empowering timber design, and acting as an agent of change towards more sustainable, low carbon forms of construction.
