Description / Abstract:


In this Condition, the following words and expressions shall have the meanings set out respectively against them:

a. "CPET" means the UK Government's Central Point of Expertise for Timber.

b. "FLEGT" means the Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade initiative by the European Union to use the power of timber-consuming countries to reduce the extent of illegal logging.

c. "Evidence" means either:

(1) an invoice or delivery note from the timber supplier or subcontractor to the Contractor specifying that the product supplied to the Authority is Forest Stewardship Council FSC or Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification PEFC certified; or

(2) other robust evidence of sustainability or FLEGT licensed origin, as advised by CPET.

d. "Independent Verification" means that an evaluation is undertaken and reported by an individual or body:

(1) whose organisation, systems and procedures conform to "ISO Guide 65:1996 (EN 45011:1998) General requirements for bodies operating product certification systems or equivalent"; and

(2) who is accredited to audit against forest management standards by a body whose organisation, systems and procedures conform to "ISO 17011: 2004 General Requirements for Providing Assessment and Accreditation of Conformity Assessment Bodies or equivalent".

e. "Timber and Wood-Derived Products" means timber (including Recycled Timber and Virgin Timber but excluding Short-Rotation Coppice) and any products that contain wood or wood fibre derived from those timbers. Such products range from solid wood to those where the manufacturing processes obscure the wood element.

This DEFCON uses Recycled Timber to cover:

(1) Pre consumer reclaimed wood and wood fibre and industrial by products but excluding sawmill co-products which fall within the category of Virgin Timber;

(2) Post consumer reclaimed wood and wood fibre, and driftwood; (3) Reclaimed timber abandoned or confiscated at least ten years previously

(3) Reclaimed timber abandoned or confiscated at least ten years previously
