The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) is an international certification scheme that promotes good forestry practice through regular audits by FSC® accredited certification bodies.
As the adverse social and environmental effects of irresponsibly managed forests and illegal logging have been publicised, demand for FSC® paper and wood has grown significantly, creating sustainability for the industry. Products which carry the FSC® label can be verified as having been sourced from these certified well-managed forests.
A chain of custody system allows woodfibre materials produced in certified forests to be tracked from the forest to consumer, demonstrating your businesses compliance.
2SB can assist your business in London, Kent and Sussex and the UK by improving its change of custody and achieve FSC® Certification.

Consultation – initial fact finding conversation on the phone or in person to understand more about your business
Proposal – when we understand what your needs are, we will produce a proposal that outlines the support required to get you certification
Implementation – once the proposal is approved, implementation can begin. We will work with you to prepare your management system for the audit
External audit – you will be visited by an external certification body who will test your system
Ongoing support – whilst most clients are able to look after their system without further external assistance we can provide refresher training if you have a new management representative
For any single management system including ISO 9001, 14001, 27001, 45001 and FSC, a typical time frame to implementation is 4 months.
This can vary depending on how effective the company is at implementing the certification and the number of certifications being acquired. Its best ot have the advice of a consultant when doing this but a company can do it alone if they so wish, although success rates may vary.
