We do our utmost to avoid the trade and procurement of wood from the following categories:

a)      Illegally harvested timber
b)      Wood which has been harvested in violation of habitual and fundamental rights
c)      Wood that has been harvested in forests where particularly vulnerable interests are threatened
d)      Wood which has been harvested in forests transformed into plantations
e)      Wood of genetically modified trees

Should it be found that suppliers deliver us from the above-mentioned sources, we will promptly cease the purchase of such wood from such suppliers and stop sales immediately.

We undertake to identify and publish the origin of the goods. If it is impossible to identify the sources of origin of some wood products, we undertake to replace them with goods of a clear origin.

Certified wood must never be mixed or mixed with non-certified wood. Certified wood must be clearly identified and separated.

Wood Declaration

In 2012 the Swiss goverment issued a regulation on the declaration of wood and wood products (SR 944.021). This regulation is based on the consumer information law (SR 944.0) and regulates the declaration requirements for wood species and wood origin for veneer, lumber and other wood products. The aim is to increase the transparency for consumer so that they can make consious purchasing decisions.

Atlas Holz AG declares on every delivery paper as well as every invoice the origin (country code) as well as the botanical name of the wood specie.


The European Timber Regulation EUTR prohibits placing illegal timber on the market and obliges all operators who place timber and timber products on the market in the EU for the first time to exercise due diligence. Timber from Swiss forests does not pose any cause for concern in terms of illegal harvesting. The nationwide implementation of the Swiss Forest Act is ensured by the far-reaching competencies of the authorities responsible for the implementation of the relevant legislative provisions.

Holzhandelsverordnung HHV

Per 1. Januar 2022 tritt in der Schweiz die HHV in Kraft. Sie wird auch CHTR genannt (CH Timber Regulation) und ist das Pendant zur europäischen Holzhandelsverordnung EUTR. Alle Unternehmen, die Holz und Holzerzeugnisse ab dem 01.01.2022 erstmalig in der Schweiz in Verkehr bringen, müssen sich an die HHV halten. Sie verlangt von allen Marktakteuren (Importeure) ihre Pflicht zur Sorgfalt einzuhalten und die Risiken für illegales Holz zu minimieren. Zuwiderhandlungen werden mit Busse oder Gefängnis bestraft.

Detaillierte Information finden Sie im Video (Holzhandelsverordnung kurz erklärt) und beim Bundesamt für Umwelt BAFU (Handelsregulierung in der Schweiz)
