FSC & PEFC Chain of Custody Certification
NZWOOD has Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) chain of custody certification. The certification proves that the timber NZWOOD sells meets environmentally and socially responsible timber criteria. FSC and PEFC Chain of custody systems are governed by standards that require specific documentation and procedures for handling certified wood products with the basic aim to prevent the mixing of FSC or PEFC wood with uncontrolled sources. All information relating to the path taken by products from the forest including each stage of processing, transformation, manufacturing and distribution is tracked.
FSC Chain of Custody Certification
FSC chain of custody certified products provide assurances that the wood originates from well managed or responsibly managed forests. NZWOOD provide a range of plywood, scaffolding and LVL products that are FSC Certified with a FSC Mix 70% claim. Our main supplier for these products is Juken New Zealand Ltd.
PEFC Chain of Custody Certification
PEFC differs from FSC at the forest management level, but the chains of custody are similar. The certification includes requirements for traceability and handling of PEFC certified timber. A product carrying the PEFC label means it has originated from a forest certified by a PEFC endorsed scheme and has been handled by PEFC certified organisations. NZWOOD provide a range of I-Beams and engineered timber products that are PEFC certified. Our supplier of I-Beams is Louisiana Pacific Corporation and our supplier for engineered beams is Hyne Pty Australia.
