Certification Bodies

Unlike other sustainable forest certification systems, FSC certification takes place through independent third-party assessments of applicant companies by accredited certification bodies.

Below you will find all certification bodies that can conduct FSC Forest Management and/or Chain of Custody certification audits. All certifiers work nationally and have local auditors located across the country.

Please also refer to the Accreditation Services International (ASI) website for the latest information about certification bodies.
