Forest Chain of Custody Certificates

SCS provides certification services for a number of forest product chain of custody standards. Below is a list of the standards we certify to, with instructions on how to find certified clients. For forest management certificates, visit our Forest Management Certificates page.

FSC and Sustainable Biomass Program (SBP) require certification bodies, under certain circumstances, to solicit stakeholder comments on our clients' Due Diligence Systems and Supply Base Report/Supply Base Report Annex 1. To see a list of current public consultations and participate by providing comments regarding conformity or nonconformity to applicable requirements, please visit our Stakeholder Review page.
