FSC chain of custody certification verifies that FSC-certified material has been identified and separated from non-certified and non-controlled material as it makes its way along the supply chain, from the forest to the market. All sizes and organizational structures are possible for chain of custody certification, including single-site, multi-site, and groups of organizations, FSC project certification provides third-party verification for projects made of or containing forest-based materials from responsible sources. A goal of the system is to reduce the risk that non-certified material used in the manufacture of FSC MIX products is linked to practices that harm forests and people.
