TPAC assesses timber certification systems and advises the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment (I&M) on the outcome. The objective of the Committee is to facilitate the government’s commitment to procure 100% sustainable timber. Next to a set of clear 'Procurement Criteria for Timber' which have been developed with Dutch stakeholders, TPAC has distinct procedures to ensure that its assessments are transparent, reliable and verifiable.
