FSC Certification uses a voluntary, market based system in which forests, companies-anyway associated to timber related products are audited against principles and criteria of FSC Certification (Forest Stewardship Council Certification). The performance based standards encompass environmental, social and economic-values, and are framed to ensure that the forests are managed sustainably.
FSC Certification assure traceability of products from the forests to the point of sale. Products that are manufactured from responsibly-harvested forests are identified with the FSC Certification logo, which is considered the “gold-standard” of forest certification by major environmental groups

FSC Certification Chain of Custody
Certification does not end with at the edge of the forest. For a product to be FSC certified, every business in the manufacturing & distribution chain must undergo a Chain of Custody audit to assure that certified and non-certified materials are kept separate and that FSC Certification claims are legitimate. In short, an FSC certified log must be able to be tracked from the woods, through the manufacturing process and to the final product that is placed on the retail-shelf. This rigorous chain of custody process is part of what makes FSC Certification unique among forest certification programs.
