Forest Stewardship Council Certification (FSC)
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an institution that deals with the protection of forest cover with the aim of ensuring that there is sustainable use. The organisation achieves this by setting standards that promote the satisfaction of various economic, social and environmental needs of a community while at the same time securing resources for the future generations. It applies principles of traceability to ensure that trading activities involving wood products are derived from certified forests.
FSC certification is a recognition from the FSC body indicating that the products that a wood company deals with have met the traceability and sustainable use principles. FSC certification can either be the Chain of Custody Certification or the Forest Management Certification.
Chain of Custody Certification is meant for enterprises that deal with the production and trade of forest products whereas the Forest Management Certification is a certificate for managers and forest owners.
The Forest Management Certification is achieved when managers safeguard areas of high conservation value. Additionally, certification requires that managers address all non-conformities that had been noted during pre-assessment by a third-party certification body.
The Chain of Custody Certification (COC) requires that one’s gross annual sales of wood products be less than five million dollars. Additionally, for an enterprise to be Chain of Custody Certified they should meet the requirements as outlined in the Chain of Custody Standard FSC-STD-40-004.
