Senior US government figures ask for EUDR delay

The US government has sent a formal letter the to the European Commission asking it to delay the implementation of the European Union Deforestation Regulation (EUDR).


EUDR seeks to guarantee that a list of seven commodities coming onto the EU market, including products from cattle have no links to deforestation. It will start to come into effect at the end of this year, as things stand.

In its formal letter, the US has said it is worried about the impact EUDR could have on companies there, saying the work companies are being asked to carry out to prove compliance with the regulation is presenting “critical challenges” to US exporters.
