Chain of Custody

With its extensive experience and recognition in the field of certification, APCER provides forestry organizations – from extraction to marketing to the end consumer – with certification that shows that their forest-based products come from responsibly managed forests, giving them easier access to the “ecomarket”.

APCER provides Chain of Custody Certification for Portugal, Spain and Brazil through accreditation by ASI – Assurance Services Intenational. As a certification body accredited by ASI, APCER is thus able to provide internationally recognised certificates.


Chain of Custody certification is applicable to:
  • Organizations that process/transform forest products
  • Organizations that market forest-based products


The FSCand the benefits of FSC:

The Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC™) is a non-profit, non-governmental, international and independent organization. It was founded in 1993 by a group of suppliers and traders of wood, and by representatives of environmental organizations and human rights associations. The FSC is made up of three chambers – economic, environmental and social.

The FSC’s Mission is to promote Responsible Forest Management which establishes the FSC Principles and Criteria for environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and cost-effective forestry management.

The FSC supports and promotes the development of national and regional standards according to its mission; it accredits and monitors certification bodies that use the FSC standards.
