Get Started with EUDR Compliance

With the European Union's EUDR regulation set to enforce a strict ban on products linked to deforestation post-December 30, 2024, the future of trading tea, coffee, cocoa, cattle, soy, rubber, and wood into the EU hangs in the balance. Failure to comply is not just a risk—it's a direct path to losing your foothold in one of the world's largest markets.

What is EUDR?

With the European Union's EUDR regulation set to enforce a strict ban on products linked to deforestation post-December 30, 2024, the future of trading tea, coffee, cocoa, cattle, soy, rubber, and wood into the EU hangs in the balance. Failure to comply is not just a risk—it's a direct path to losing your foothold in one of the world's largest markets.

What are the potential implications of EUDR?

Financial Risks:

  • Increased Costs: Implementing the necessary systems and processes for compliance can increase operational costs significantly. This includes costs associated with due diligence, risk assessment, and potentially altering supply chains.
  • Fines and Penalties: Penalties for non-compliance with the EUDR may include fines proportionate to the environmental damage and value of the products, with a maximum of at least 4% of the company’s EU turnover. This can have a substantial financial impact on businesses.
  • Market Access: Businesses that do not comply with the EUDR may be prohibited from placing their products on the EU market or exporting them from the EU. This could lead to loss of market access and associated revenue.
  • Product Confiscation: There is a risk of confiscation of non-compliant products, leading to direct financial losses, as well as loss of the revenue gained from such products.
  • Exclusion from Public Contracts: For serious or repeated infringements, companies may face temporary exclusion from public procurement processes and public funding, which could impact long-term financial sustainability and growth prospects.

Legal Risks:

  • Compliance: Companies must comply with the requirement that products are deforestation-free and produced in accordance with the laws of the country of production. Non-compliance could lead to legal action from EU authorities.
  • Supply Chain Verification: There's a legal obligation to verify the supply chain, which may be complex and potentially expose companies to legal risks if their suppliers are not in compliance.
  • Enforcement Actions: EU Member states are responsible for enforcing the Regulation through inspections and sanctions, where necessary. Failure to comply could result in enforcement actions, including fines and other penalties.
  • Third-party Claims: The EUDR allows for the possibility of third-party claims, where private parties may submit concerns regarding non-compliance, potentially leading to legal proceedings.

What is Blockchain?

    Blockchain technology represents a sophisticated and immutable method of data recording, functioning as a decentralized ledger distributed across a network of computers.

    This architecture ensures that once information is appended to the ledger, it becomes virtually unalterable, thereby preserving the integrity and permanence of the recorded data.

    Such characteristics render blockchain an exceptionally reliable mechanism for documenting and tracking transactions with unparalleled security and transparency.

Why it's important for your business?

  • Reliable Verification: Blockchain enables a verifiable record of your products' journey from origin to market. This immutable transparency is crucial for proving compliance with the EU's stringent regulations against sourcing commodities / derivatives / products that are a result of deforestation.
  • Decentralized Assurance: Because the technology operates across a network without a central authority, it eliminates single points of failure and ensures data integrity, offering a more resilient and efficient way to manage compliance.

Private, Permissioned and Public access to information

  • Private Blockchain: This setup ensures that sensitive information is shared only with authorized parties, such as internal compliance teams or selected regulators.
  • Permissioned Blockchain: A middle ground between public and private, a permissioned blockchain could allow selected stakeholders, such as suppliers, regulators, and certain third parties like auditors or NGOs, to access information that verifies EUDR compliance.
  • Public Blockchain: For maximum transparency and public trust, a public blockchain could be utilized. All data related to EUDR compliance could be accessible to anyone interested, from consumers to market analysts.

Proof of your promise of deforestation-free sourcing

Our service provisions integration with satellite technology and collaborates with third-party agencies to ensure sourcing practices are deforestation-free. This advanced approach allows for precise monitoring and verification of land use, supporting compliance with environmental standards like the EUDR. By leveraging real-time data and expert insights, we provide robust evidence that the commodities and products our clients deal with are sourced from areas with no deforestation, thereby ensuring ethical supply chains and mitigating legal and financial risks associated with non-compliance.

How traceability works?

In the context of the EUDR, blockchain-backed traceability streamlines compliance across the supply chain:

Securely records the origin of raw materials, ensuring they come from deforestation-free areas.
Logs compliance certifications on the blockchain, certifying EUDR standards are met.
Each manufacturing step is recorded, maintaining transparency and compliance.
Tracks sustainable packaging processes and labels products as EUDR compliant.
Ensures product movements are logged, maintaining a compliant chain of custody.
Facilitates customs clearance by verifying EUDR compliance documents.
Retailers can verify the compliance of products received, ensuring integrity up to the point of sale.
Enables consumers to access the product's history, verifying its compliance with deforestation-free standards.
