Endangered Tropical Timber
Since the beginning of 2017, Dalbergia Nigra (commonly known in Britain as Brazilian Rosewood) has been classified as a threatened species and cannot currently be traded for commercial purposes.
All FSC certificate holders’ product schedules are being checked by certification bodies; Dalbergia Nigra is being removed and no new certificates that include the species are being issued. To ensure this process is successful, FSC are doing periodic desktop searches of COC product schedules.
Other Dalbergia species are listed on Appendix II, which means that an export permit is required if this species is to be traded. You can find more information here.
