Rule 67:
Timber and wood products

Directs agencies to the New Zealand timber and wood products procurement policy.

  1. Agencies must apply the New Zealand government policy on purchasing timber products when procuring timber and wood products.

More information on the timber and wood products policy

The timber and wood products procurement policy was issued by the Ministry for Primary Industries. It aims to ensure that government buys only legally sourced timber and timber products. It also encourages agencies to use only sustainably produced timber.

Key features of the policy are:

  • agencies are required to seek legally sourced timber and wood that can be verified by recognised third-party certification
  • agencies are encouraged to buy timber and wood products from sustainably managed sources that can be verified by recognised third-party certification
  • agencies are required to document, for audit purposes, the verification of the legality of timber and wood purchased.
