The following variations will be considered: Version A I: The specified certification costs will be charged only on tropical timber whereas timber from northern latitudes will not be certified.

Two items relevant to this investigation are covered by the foreign trade statistics of the Federal Statistical Office (STATISTISCHES BUNDESAMT, Fachserie 7, Reihe 2): "Paints and lacquers based on synthetic polymers or chemically modified natural polymers dispersed or dissolved in a non-aqueous medium" and "Paints and lacquers based on synthetic polymers or chemically modified natural polymers dispersed or dissolved in an aqueous medium". Paints in a "non-aqueous medium" are predominantly solvent-containing paints and lacquers.

The essentially solvent-free emulsion paints and artificial resin bound plasters are not included among the paints containing little or no solvent. Source: See Table 5. Own calculations. The price development in Table 6 shows that the average production unit value per ton of emulsion lacquer paints predominantly labelled with the Blue Angel enjoyed an above average increase.
