Interpreting risk levels:

  • significant risk level – will be considered by to the competent authority for the purpose of substantiating control plans over the implementation of EUTR. This level of risk will represent a minimal approach for operators. Thus, “operators” are still required to: (i) conduct risk assessments and (ii) identify risk factors on a case-by-case basis in order to be able to establish risk mitigation measures.
  • low risk level – from the perspective of the authorities competent, will only be relevant to thematic controls.
