Our modern approach to timber certification means your product is certified. Anything else just means the supply chain is certified.
CertiSource is a widely recognised timber legality verification system, offering ‘verified legal’ timber certification for any species of timber from any location in Indonesia. We use only independent ISO accredited Certification Bodies to audit timber legality against the CertiSource Standard, policies and procedures (the ‘CertiSource Legality Assessment System’).
Our system is unique. Anyone can trace individual products back through the supply chain to a verified forest concession, enabling an itemised check on product legality. Please visit our verification and product legality label pages for further details.
Trading in CertiSource Verified Legal Timber product will demonstrate compliance with relevant due diligence and due care requirements as legislation to ban illegal logging comes into force in the EU, Australia and the USA.
