Certification in timber trade

Timber trade is not just timber trade. In just about no other industry is there a greater variety of products. From round logs to wooden toys, from the particle board to a piece of furniture, the range is impressive. But the demands on the timber trade are also ever increasing. With a FSC and/or PEFC certification in the (COC) supply chain, you as dealers are actively able to let the public know about your responsible trading activities.

The most commonly mentioned reasons currently given by the timber trade speaking for certification are

  • The communication of responsible commercial trade
  • The fulfilment of customer requirements (e.g. through public procurement policies)
  • Support for the risk minimisation of timber imports (HolzSiG, EUTR)
