The Chain-of-Custody is the path which products take
from the forest
to the consumer, including all manufacturer,
transformation and distribution links.
The FSC has established international standards for both
forest management and Chain-of-Custody
certification. Chain-of-Custody certification guarantees
consumer confidence that products from certified
forests have not been mixed with products from
uncertified forests. It permits buyers and retailers to
and label products derived from certified forests.
