Chain of custody certification is designed to help organizations prove traceability at all points of the supply chain. It is not dependent, nor limited to organizations that are already holding certification to other schemes and it is available regardless of size.

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. Certification provides market access including Government Procurement Policy compliance.
