EU FLEGT Competent Authorities

What are the FLEGT Competent Authorities and how can I find them?

FLEGT Competent Authorities are the authorities in EU Member States responsible for verifying FLEGT licences, as set out in the EU FLEGT Regulation. You can find the list of FLEGT Competent Authorities here: http://ec.europa.eu/environment/forests/pdf/list_competent_authorities_flegt.pdf

In many EU Member States, a single Competent Authority is responsible for both the EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) and the FLEGT Regulation. Other Member States divide responsibilities for implementing the EUTR and the FLEGT Regulation between two Competent Authorities.
