Timber Engineering for a sustainable future
At Eco T.E.S we are fully committed to following all FSC & PEFC certified chain of custody guidelines and regulations. Timber under FSC or PEFC certification can be traced back to within 1m of area of forest it was felled from. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) are the worlds’ leaders in promoting responsible and sustainable management of the world’s forests, pioneering a respected and widespread forestry certification system.
Chain of Custody
What is Chain of Custody?
Chain of Custody (COC) Certification is a process of ensuring that a forest product has come from a legal, responsible source. It is a link from the initial logging stage, through the supply chain, potentially ending with the joinery company. Even if you used certified timber, you can only claim to be passing on a COC product if you are a certified link in the chain. If you are not, then you break the link. By having COC, you allow an environmentally conscious potential customer to make an informed choice and uphold the position of timber as the most sustainable mainstream construction material.
Why undertake Chain of Custody Certification?
Over 70% of timber brought into the UK is now legal, and responsibly sourced, with nearly 2000 companies having achieved COC Certification. The demand for certified timber is increasing as more and more contractors, house builders and government projects insisting on it. FSC and PEFC certification can also go some way to ensuring that you meet the due diligence criteria required products on the EU market.
What are FSC and PEFC?
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international network designed to promote responsible management of the world’s forests. It was established in the mid 1990s. Over 130 million hectares of forest in over 80 countries are certified over 19000 companies have FSC COC certification.
The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) is a framework for the recognition of forest certification schemes meeting internationally recognised requirements for sustainable forest management. Launched in 1999, PEFC accounts for more than 220m hectares of forest and 6000 COC certificates.
