What is FSC Chain of Custody?
FSC Chain of Custody certification verifies FSC certified forest products through the production chain. Chain of Custody (CoC) is a channel through which products are distributed from their origin in the forest to their end-use.
The FSC CoC enables verification of use of FSC certified material through the production process – from the forest to the consumer, including all successive stages of processing, transformation, manufacturing, and distribution.

Sustainable Forest Management to Wood & Paper Based Products
