Timber, lumber and wood packaging

When importing wood products, a phytosanitary certificate must accompany the goods. The Norwegian Food Safety Authority shall approve and register the import.

Note: An update of this article is pending. Please note that some terms and/or references may differ from the Movement of Goods Act and the Customs Duty Act that enters into force from the 1st of January 2023.

The requirements for phytosanitary certificate and notification to the Norwegian Food Safety Authority apply mostly for timber and certain products manufactured from coniferous wood with origin in a non-European country and Portugal. Some products manufactured from non-coniferous wood with origin in a limited number of countries have the same requirements.

There are special demands for labelling according to the international standard ISPM 15 for wood packaging arriving with imported goods.
