FSC® and PEFC case study from the joinery industry

FSC® and PEFC case study from the joinery industry

This week we have received an FSC® and PEFC case study from the joinery industry.

Our client Specialist has been kind enough to provide us with some details on why they decided to achieve certification and also how they have found the process with Interface NRM

Specialist Group

Specialist Group is a Bespoke Joinery and Fit Out business based in Northern Ireland.

They are dedicated to excellence in Manufacturing, Project Planning, and also Installation.

You can read the full case study here.

What is the difference between FSC® and PEFC certification

Ultimately they have the same aim and that is to ensure that forest-based products are responsibly sourced.

However, they cover separate areas of forest throughout the world and they cannot be mixed at any point.

How do I know whether I need FSC® and PEFC certification?

Your first port of call would be your suppliers and the clients you are selling to.

Firstly, some customers have a special requirement. This may mean that they are only willing to accept forest-based products from one of these schemes.

Secondly, FSC® and PEFC certification are both also referred to as a Chain of Custody. This means that every link in the chain from forest to end-user must be certified in order for the claim to continue.

If there is a break within the chain or your suppliers are not certified, then you in turn would not be able to apply for certification.

This is primarily down to traceability, which ensures that the products are from responsible sources.
