The FSC® certification covers the traceability of forestry products and projects related to their use, and guarantees a chain of custody that allows an organisation to control the origin of incoming and outgoing forestry products through the flow of raw materials.
Certification can be applied to all organisations operating along the forestry production chain, excluding those that do not retain the property right or physical possession of goods/materials (e.g. transport companies).
Certified organisations receive:
The products covered by the certification are: interior and exterior furnishings, urban furnishings, paper and cellulose, editors and printers, packaging and pallets, wood, firewood, tools, utensils, toys and more, frames and profiles, panels, windows, floors.
The program also includes project certification, in accordance with the FSC-STD-40-006 standard, for the validation of single, partial or complete projects that involve the use of forestry products.
Unlike product certification, project certification has no expiry.
RINA is authorised to issue paper and wood product certification in accordance with Forest Stewardship Council® - FSC®, with FSC® A000532 Licence Code. Thanks to the technical expertise in forestry management, we are accredited by ASI (Accreditation Services International) for Custody Chain Certification.
After obtaining the certificate, can I immediately use the FSC® brand?
