Chain of Custody of Forest Based Products - Requirements (PEFC ST 2002:2013) Second Edition
This standard covers the requirements to implement a Chain of Custody for forest based products.
These Chain of Custody requirements describe a process of how to get from the information about the origin associated with the procured raw material to the information about the origin which is attached to the organisation’s products. This standard specifies two optional approaches for Chain of Custody, namely the physical separation method and the percentage based method.
This standard also specifies the minimum management system requirements for the implementation and management of the chain of custody process. An organisation’s quality (ISO 9001:2008) or environmental management system (ISO 14001:2004) may be used to implement the minimum requirements for the management system defined in this standard.
In addition this standard includes minimum requirements on health, safety and labour issues.
The standard entered into force on 1 January 2016.
