About FSC COC Certificate
The Forest Stewardship Council is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organisation established to promote the responsible management of the world's forests.
Chain of Custody certification is the unbroken path which timber and paper products take from the forest to the consumer, including all stages of processing, manufacturing, transportation and distribution.
Chain of Custody certification provides third party, independent verification that the certified timber or paper products originate from well-managed forests, and, verifies that these products are not mixed with products from uncertified forests at any point in the supply chain, except under strict controls.
