THE CHAIN OF CUSTODY
Forest and Chain of Custody certification enables consumers to make informed purchase decisions. It assures consumers that the product has been sourced from a forest certified as sustainably managed in accordance with an internationally recognised legal framework that has been independently audited.
THE CHAIN OF CUSTODY INVOLVES:
- Applicants committed to only using wood from forests certified to the AFS standard and are trained to use a documented standard approach to record keeping and operating within the system.
- Independent audit of the system ensures compliance to the documented standard.
THERE ARE A NUMBER OF LINKS THAT ARE KEY TO THE SUCCESS OF THE SYSTEM.
- FTT Inc as the parent body of the Chain of Custody system has engaged a systems manager.
- The Chain of Custody system is independently audited to the Australian Forestry Standard on an annual basis by an accredited certification body, Global-Mark.
