FSC(Forest Stewardship Council®）is an independent, nongovernmental, not-for-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests. There are two types of FSC certificates, Forest Management (FM) certification and Chain of Custody (CoC) certification, which only FSC accredited certification bodies can issue, renew and withdraw.
FSC/ CoC certification verifies FSC certified forest products through the production chain. FSC/ CoC certification is for companies that manufacture, process or trade in timber or non- timber forest products and want to demonstrate to their customers that they use responsibly produced raw materials.
