For the wood and timber business: Get ready for PEFC and FSC certification
The forest and timber business experiences a growing demand for documentation of the legality for their timber and wood products and, in some cases, it is required that the wood carries a recognized certification such as PEFC or FSC.
In order to be able to trade products certified with either PEFC or FCS, the company must have a ‘chain-of custody’ certification (certification for traceability). The certification itself is administered by accredited certification companies, who issue the certificates.
Prior to obtaining a ‘chain of custody’ certification, the company must implement systematical and written procedures for the handling of certified timber and wood products.

- understand the requirements in the traceability procedures
- establish and describe procedures and policies
- implement the procedures throughout the company
- undertake the required training of all employees in the procedures
