FSC controlled wood for forest management organizations (CW/FM)
Conformity to the requirements provided in FSC-STD-30-010 gives opportunity for forest management organizations to demonstrate conformity to certain aspect of harvesting legality, but is not intended to demonstrate compliance with all applicable national and international laws.
Conformity to this system allows forest management organizations supplying FSC controlled wood to other organizations holding an FSC chain of custody certificate for mixing of such wood with FSC certified materials. The system allows demonstrating that participants of the chain of custody take maximum efforts to prevent trading of illegally harvested wood in support of the international Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) program.
Allows supplying FSC controlled wood to participants of the FSC chain of custody for mixing of such wood with FSC certified materials during manufacture of products with FSC Mix statements.
This statement provides the basis for forest management organizations to be able to supply controlled wood to organizations holding an FSC certificate against FSC-STD-40-004, FSC standard for chain of custody certification, which manufacture FSC certified products, and FSC-STD-40-005, Standard for company evaluation of FSC controlled wood.
