About this publication

Interest in chain of custody project certification is growing significantly, with national and EU legislation increasing the obligations on the construction industry to prove that products they specify for construction projects are from sustainable sources.

Private construction companies and government organisations involved in construction projects of any size need to demonstrate that they specify and procure timber products on a chain of custody basis: the unbroken and traceable path that products take from the forest to the final end product.

This accessible guide will help you to understand Chain of Custody Project Certification for FSC and PEFC Standards by explaining what it is, how you can begin to implement it for your project and who can support you in this process. There are also references to successful case studies which incorporate certification at the project level, and infographics illustrating the process.

Topics covered include:

- Getting started with project certification
- FSC and PEFC
- Quality management systems
- Critical control points
- EU Timber regulation (EUTR)
- Certification and audit process
