What is a chain of custody?

Chain of custody certification is for companies that manufacture or sell timber products, including paper manufacturers, traders, and printing houses. A supply chain certification allows companies to verify that the timber used in production comes from well-managed forests, considering economic, ecological, and social aspects.

For a product to be considered PEFC-certified, all companies involved in the production, processing, repackaging, and selling of the product must be certified in accordance with the chain of custody standards. Only then companies are entitled to use certification statements and label products with the PEFC trademark, thus identifying materials obtained from responsible sources.

What is PEFC?

Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) is an international forest certification scheme that promotes sustainable, environmentally friendly, economically sound, and socially responsible forest management.

Forest certification verifies the sustainable management and use of forests. A product with the PEFC-certified material mark and/or label reassures operators and consumers that the raw materials used in the production of the product are sourced from sustainably managed forests. The global goal of forest certification is to reduce the uncontrolled use of forests in third world countries.
