FSC Chain of Custody

FSC Consultants

Our FSC Consultants can help you implement ethical and sustainable practices in your business, and achieve the widely recognised FSC Chain of Custody Certification.

WHY COMMIT TO FSC?

The FSC® supports well managed, sustainable forests, not only in terms of the environmental impact, but also the social responsibility towards those who depend on the Forest for their livelihoods and habitats.

An FSC® Chain of Custody System ensures materials & resources can be traced back to a responsibly managed forest, which is good for everyone involved.

WHAT CAN BE CERTIFIED?

Almost anything originating from the forest can be certified including:

  • Wood
  • Paper
  • Rubber (Tree Sap)
  • Venison
  • Truffles
  • Oils

CLAIMS AND MARKS

The FSC® Chain of Custody standard provides several methods of accounting for certified products including the credit system and the percentage system, so we can find a solution that works for your organisation. Any claim made on a product must be accurately accounted.

Many organisations benefit from using the distinct FSC® certification mark on their product, and the promotional mark on their stationery and marketing materials, however there are strict guidelines around it’s use and our FSC consultants can help you avoid any pit-falls.

THE EUTR

The European Timber Regulations imposed tougher rules on those who bring timber on to the EU market for the first time. Running the FSC® CoC system is one way to ensure you are keeping the records required by the EUTR, in terms of tracing back to source.
