HMRC investigating softwood plywood imports 2012-05-22 01:48:54

The British customs authority HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) sent a letter to the Timber Trade Federation on 27 February promising to step up its inspections of softwood plywood imported into the EU against the duty-free quota. HMRC said that a new inspection procedure should identify combined or twin plywood that was incorrectly imported against the quota. The authority intends to share the results of its investigation with the European Commission as misdeclarations might be a problem for other EU member states, as well.
