PEFC Chain of Custody Auditor Training

PEFC Chain of Custody

Auditors from around Southeast Asia are invited to join the PEFC Chain of Custody auditor training session. Click here to register now.

PEFC International and NCCF are organizing a regional PEFC CoC training. It will combine the expertise of PEFC International in delivering the training and local network and knowledge of NGB and participants. Certification Bodies can nominate their auditors to attend this training.

PEFC CoC certification provides independently verified assurance that certified wood contained in a product originates from well-managed forests. In addition, PEFC Due Diligence System (DDS) minimizes the risk that timber comes from illegal harvesting and enables companies to demonstrate alignment with regulatory requirements (e.g. EUTR). The PEFC DDS is an integral part of PEFC CoC certification. The entire flow of wood material from the forest to the consumer must be monitored and documented to demonstrate its origin. This evidence is known as the Chain of Custody (CoC).
