The objective of developing an Australian Industry Timber Due Diligence (AITDD) system is to a
develop a clear and unambiguous system that can be applied in all situations by companies
importing regulated timber products into Australia or processing domestic raw logs to comply with
the Australian Illegal Logging Prohibition Act 2012 (the Act) and the Illegal Logging Prohibition
Amendment Regulation 2013 (the Regulation).

Under the Regulation, which takes effect on 30th November 2014, importers of certain timber
products to Australia will be required to assess whether the products they intend to import have
been - or are likely to have been - illegally harvested.
 
The requirements are that importers of regulated timber products must develop a due diligence system and undertake due diligence of these regulated timber products before they import them to Australia.
 
From 30th November 2014, importers of these products will also be required to declare to the
Australian Customs and Border Protection Service whether they have met the requirements of this
law.
