Chain of custody certification is the process an organization goes through to provide verification that the products they process originate from well managed forests. Timber and paper products that are covered by chain of custody certification can be sold as certified, thereby allowing the supplier access a wider market. Chain of custody certification can also be used by organizations as part of a due diligence system to support evidence of compliance with laws for timber harvesting and supply.
