Chain of custody certification is open to all organizations regardless of market impact, turnover, size or memberships. Chain of custody certification is not dependent, nor limited to organizations that are already holding certification to other schemes. BM TRADA will be happy to consider quoting for any organization that is interested in Chain of custody certification.

Certification costs are based on a daily rate for audit activity and additional administrative and certification costs.  

Chain of custody certification of your timber or timber-derived products provides independently-verified assurance that the wood used originates from responsibly sourced forests and that the material has been tracked through every stage of the process from forest to end-user.

By implementing and maintaining a robust chain of custody system, companies can provide assurances to suppliers and clients, that their products are sourced and produced in compliance with the highest ecological, social and economic standards.

Chain of custody certification works through the entire supply chain to provide proof of traceability back to well-managed forests, controlled or recycled sources.
