Effective chemical preservation prolongs the service life and significantly improves the sustainability profile of wood, particularly of European-grown species. However, current interpretation and implementation of regulations threatens the continued availability of effective wood preservation solutions. The VCI calls for urgent improvement of the European regulatory framework to ensure the continued availability of effective wood preservation and to:

  • Recognise the importance and benefits of chemical wood preservation and ensure continued availability of effective wood protection products.
  • Strengthen innovation for Europe through a more reliable regulatory process and shorter timelines for new and improved products coming to the market.
  • Ensure functioning of the internal EU market by fair and consistent implementation of the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR).
