Ukraine’s ban on exports to be extended to firewood

11.02.2019 − 

Members of the Ukrainian parliament Werchowna Rada petitioned for an export ban on firewood on 16 January 2019. The draft bill “On the protection of the Ukrainian forests” provides for a moratorium on exports of firewood. The purpose of this is to close the loophole that exists in the ban on log exports in place since November 2015 and January 2017. At the moment, only logs with a maximum length of 2 m declared under the customs tariff 4401 are exempted from the ban on exports. The possibilities are being exploited by wood-based panel and pulp manufacturers in central and southeast Europe, for example, to import industrial wood from the Ukraine legally even though the ban on log exports has come into force.
