Amended Directive on Chain of Custody Certification Published

FSC Directive on Chain of Custody Certification

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) has published an amended Directive on Chain of Custody Certification, including three Advice Notes to assist companies that import FSC certified or controlled materials into the EU to comply with the Regulation.


These Advice Notes regulate duties to collect and pass through information to the EU importers, to prevent “minor components” of unknown origin from being included in imported FSC-certified products, as well as compliance with trade and customs laws of the exporting countries.

You can download the amended Directive on Chain of Custody Certification below.
