Effective on 28 April 2017, Accreditation Services International (ASI) has lifted the suspension of certification body Bureau Veritas Certification Holding SAS after the company has satisfactorily addressed and corrected the non-conformities that led to the sanction in place since October 2016.

With this measure the certification body returns to its original accredited scope that allows it to issue FSC Forest Management and FSC Chain of Custody certification worldwide (excluding Forest Management certification in Russia).

FSC is confident that Bureau Veritas will continue to deliver the high quality of services expected of all its accredited certification bodies.
Bureau Veritas currently has approximately 3,800 FM and CoC FSC certificates issued worldwide.
