In this work a non parametric approach is used in order to evaluate the relative efficiency of a sample of firms producers of wooden goods, in presence of non desirable outputs. As main results, we find that the consideration of several restrictions on the expansion of non desirable outputs reduces the inefficiency indexes obtained under the traditional approach; also, we get the impact of hypothetical environmental regulations on the efficient behaviour of the firms, calculating the potential output loss in each regulatory scenario. En este trabajo se utiliza una aproximación no paramétrica para evaluar la eficiencia relativa de una muestra de empresas productoras de artículos de madera y muebles, en presencia de outputs no deseables. Como principales resultados, se encuentra que la consideración de diferentes restricciones sobre la expansión de los outputs no deseables reduce de manera significativa los índices de ineficiencia obtenidos con el enfoque tradicional; asimismo, se obtiene el impacto de distintas hipótesis relativas a regulaciones ambientales sobre el comportamiento eficiente de las empresas de la muestra, calculando además la pérdida potencial de output en cada hipotético escenario.
