Certification Bodies

UKFCG Certificate Presentation (© UKFCG)© UKFCGFSC does not issue certificates itself - instead, the certification process is carried out by independent FSC accredited certification bodies, that assess forest management and chain of custody operations against the FSC standards. Only FSC accredited certification bodies are authorised to issue FSC certificates. The accreditation of FSC certification bodies is carried out by ASI Accreditation Services International.
