PEFC - Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes – is Europe’s marking system for wood from sustainable forest management. It is a combined initiative of the privately owned forest sector, the wood processing industry, environmental groups and trade unions for certification of wood from sustainable managed forests. It attests to the buyers and customers that by the purchase of such products, sustainable forest management is promoted. Further information on this initiative can be found at www.pefc.at. PEFC requires also an inspection in wood processing and timber trade (Chain of Custody shortened to CoC). The inspection of retailers, saw-mills and secondary processors, guarantees that only certified wood products are sold.
To ensure that your customers can choose products with a clear conscience Holzforschung Austria verified the compliance with these as an independent body.
