CoC Certification based on the PEFC system and CoC Certification of forest products based on the FSC® system
The demand for wood, paper and other forest products sourced from well-managed forests continues to grow. Consumers and business partners want assurance that your products come from responsibly managed sources that limit their damage to the forest environment and forest-dependent indigenous communities. Your business must also prove that your goods come exclusively from legal sources as required by the EU Timber Regulation, the Lacey Act in the U.S., or similar legislative requirements.

The Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC) is a nonprofit organisation that set standards for forestry practices with the aim of promoting environmentally responsible and socially beneficial forestry. Wood products such as furniture can be labelled as FSC certified if they meet the high standards set by the organisation.
To be certified, the flow of the wood material – from the forest to the customer – must be monitored to demonstrate its origins. This evidence is known as Chain of Custody (CoC).
The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) is an international non-profit, nongovernmental organisation promoting sustainable forest management through third-party certification. It is the only international forest scheme that bases its criteria on internationally accepted intergovernmental conventions and guidelines. Wood products such as furniture must meet the high standards set by the organisation in order to be labelled as PEFC certified. The entire flow of wood material from forest to consumer must be monitored and documented to demonstrate its origins. This evidence is known as the Chain of Custody (CoC).
