Matalan has exercised due diligence, as requested by the European Union Timber Regulation, by using the Bureau Veritas Due Diligence System, operational due diligence system provided by Bureau Veritas and recognised by the European Commission.

Each supplier that has been issued an attestation has been verified by Bureau Veritas Certification against the requirements of the BV DDS. A BV DDS risk assessment has been performed based on a thorough review of relevant documented evidence provided by the company, and when the negligible risk has been found, a BV DDS attestation for the relevant product scope (including species and origin country) has been emitted. These BV DDS verification attestations are valid for a period of 12 months.
