Timber Legality Verification

Proactive forest managers, manufacturers and wood product traders are responding to a growing number of timber legality regulations by seeking third-party verification of their timber products’ legal status. Verification helps your organization comply with the US Lacey Act, the European Union Timber Regulation, the Australia Illegal Logging Prohibition Act, and other timber legality regulations.

SCS Global Services can tailor a verification approach to your organization’s needs. Verification helps you gather all the evidence needed to demonstrate legal compliance, thereby reducing risk in your supply chain and reinforcing customer confidence that your wood products were legally sourced.
