The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)/Chain of custody
Wood Industry supports an FSC certified wood production chain (Chain of Custody) based on the "FSC IN, FSC OUT" principle.
Chain of Custody is the path which wood takes from the forest to the consumer, including all manufacturing, transformation and distribution links.
Chain of Custody guarantees that wood from FSC certified forests is not mixed with uncertified wood. The Chain of Custody label requires transparent product identification, separate storage and treatment of certified wood, and detailed documentation at all stages: purchase, delivery, processing, shipment, invoicing, etc.
Manufacturers, processors, carriers, etc. are audited on a regular basis to guarantee to the consumer that the product complies with the specified standards.
FSC is an international organisation that promotes ecologically, socially and economically sound and sustainable forestry.
