Chain of Custody

Chain of Custody (CoC) tracks the path taken by a forest product from its origin in a certified forest, right through to its end use by the consumer.

It includes every link in the supply chain - such as harvesting, transportation, primary and secondary processing, manufacturing, re-manufacturing, distribution and sales. It means that when buying forest products, customers can select certified products that have a traceable source.

There are many parts to the chain of custody program, however two very important elements concern certification. Certification occurs in two parts. The first part relates to the organisation being assessed (via an audit) to be suitable to hold a chain of custody certificate. This is essentially a 'permit to sell'. It allows us to claim "we are authorised to carry certified product". The second part relates to the certification of the product. Each item that Tilling Timber claim as being certified must be indicated on an invoice. This is the physical product we purchase from our supplier and their invoice tells us that the product is certified.

Tilling Timber have a 'permit' to buy and sell certified timber under the PEFC scheme. However, we must also nominate what products we wish to sell under the the PEFC scheme. At present Tilling Timber only distribute our SmartLVL 15 and SmartJoist as PEFC certified.

If you have any enquires of complaints about our certification (both in terms of process and product) please feel free to contact us click here
