Forest Products Chain of Custody                               
 

Chain of Custody is the path taken by raw materials, processed materials and products, from the forest to the consumer, including all successive stages of processing, transformation and distribution.

Certified chain-of-custody systems are used to ensure that wood comes from certified forests. They are established and audited according to rules set by forest certification systems and The European Timber Regulations, EU 995/2010.

 

  The Chain of Custody concept ensures that wood and paper products are
  certified at each stage of manufacture (from the forest to the end-use)
  providing a means to identify products that meet stringent environmental
  standards.


  Products conforming to Chain of Custody demonstrate that compliance has
  been maintained throughout the path taken by the finished roll of wallpaper.
