Firstly you will need to ensure that the products you are sourcing are from a PEFC certified source. Secondly, you will need to have a Chain of Custody Management System in place for an audit to be conducted against. By far the simplest way to get started in to employ a consultant.
A consultant will come in, evaluate what systems / procedures & documentation you already have in place and can then work with you to implement a Chain of Custody Management System tailored to your organisation Which meets the requirements of the Standard.
Give the Sales Team a call today and we can send you over a list of recommended consultants whose management systems we know and trust!
Once you have ensured your products are from a PEFC certified source, and have implemented your Chain of Custody Management System you can then apply for certification. The audit process is simple and we aim to make it as hassle free for your organisation as possible. Once we have successfully completed your audit we will then issue you with your certificate.
