Increasingly, consumers are demanding that the wood products they buy are made from timber that can be traced back to a sustainable and legal source. The Wood Connect Chain of Custody system provides that assurance. It is a proven, simple, yet rigorous system that covers all steps in the supply chain.
The Wood Connect group chain of custody certification provides businesses with a value proposition for certification against AS4707, The Chain of Custody standard for Forest and Tree-Based Products. As part of a group scheme, the costs involved with certification are spread across the members of the groups, rather than each organisation having to develop a stand-alone certification system.
While other systems exist, the Wood Connect Group Chain of Custody system is a proven system based on the work of Fine Timber Tasmania that supported the Tasmanian forest and wood products industry over many years.
