THE CHAIN OF CUSTODY

logo 

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.
