AS 4707 Chain of Custody

Chain of Custody (AS 4707) is the path taken by raw materials from the forest to the consumer. Having certification against Chain of Custody provides independent verification and ensures that 'promise' is delivered to a consumer. 

BSI is Australia’s leading certification body for forestry and timber certification. We will review intermediate steps such as:

  • Harvesting
  • Transportation
  • Primary and secondary processing
  • Manufacturing
  • Re-manufacturing
  • Distribution 
  • Sales

Chain of Custody certification ensures that wood or wood products are derived from forests managed in accordance with the principles of sustainable forest management.

In Australia and the Asia-Pacific Region, most organizations involved in the production of wood or manufacturing of wood and fibre products, operate under an internationally recognized standard for sustainable forest management, or an associated standard for Chain of Custody for wood products.

A systematic approach to forest management and chain of custody provides business confidence. It’s a way of providing consumers and retailers with confidence in the production system behind the products they consume. Consumers and Retailers are becoming more discerning when it comes to the selection of products and services and are concerned about the environment, social consequences and practices employed in the growing and harvesting of the trees from which the wood products are sourced.
