Chain of Custody certification enables certified material to be tracked from the forest to the final product.
PEFC is about the supply of Certified Product and Chain of Custody. which involves the tracking of wood products originating from certified forests through all phases of transformation to the end product used by consumers. This ensures that two views are covered – this being Sustainable Forest Management and sourcing of Wood & Paper Products as well as Legal Forest Management and sourcing of Wood & Paper Products.
