The February 6 course, run by sustainability services specialist NEPCon, is designed for compliance and procurement managers to get a grip on the regulation which comes into force on March 3.

The event is scheduled to run the day before Chatham House’s illegal logging event. Training covers key aspects of due diligence, including risk assessment and risk mitigation.

Delegates will be guided through LegalSource tools and systems, which companies can adopt or use to benchmark their own due diligence system.

NEPCon timber legality programme manager Christian Sloth will lead the training. Other NEPCon events include two-or three-day courses in Jurmala, Latvia on January 29-31 and March 5-7. For more information visit
