Controlled wood

FSC is the only global system for forest management certification that controls the non-certified wood contained in FSC labelled products.

There is the possibility that a FSC certified product include controlled wood as a component in the event there is no intention or it is not possible to have a certification as "Pure FSC". In such cases, the company uses for assessment FSC-STD-004-005 "Standard for assessment made by the company of FSC controlled wood ".

This standard was issued to allow for companies to be FSC certified and avoid the following situations:

  • 1. Trade with illegally logged wood;
  • 2. Trade with wood the logging of which had led to the violation of civil and traditional rights;
  • 3. Trade with wood logged from plantations constituted on the area of former forests;
  • 4. Trade with wood sourced in forests in which genetically modified trees were planted;

  • For further information on the risk degree of different areas of the world with regard to controlled wood, visit the site of the FSC Controlled Wood Resources Centre.
