The Irish Forest Industries Association (IFIA) has released data showing that timber processing processes in Ireland use wood from two different sources.
The IFAI says the process is not the same as the one that is used in the US, where the use of reclaimed wood is outlawed.
In the US the use and harvesting of reclaimed timber is regulated under the Endangered Species Act and is prohibited under the US Forest Products Management Act.
However, in Ireland the use is legal.
In response to the new findings, a spokesperson for IFAII said that there are different rules for different types of wood.
The spokesperson said that the use for timber floor is legal in Ireland, but the use in Irish construction of timber floors is not.
The spokesperson added that timber floor production is not allowed in Irish buildings and there are regulations for timber processing in the Irish Republic.
The use of wood from the US is also illegal, but timber floor products are not regulated in the Republic.
The Irish Ministry of Agriculture has not responded to requests for comment.
