Chain of Custody

At Ltd we understand the importance of environmental sustainability and in recognition of this we accept our responsibility towards the environment, to our customers and suppliers and are committed to purchasing timber and timber products from independently verified sources. Ltd welcomes the European Timber Regulation – EUTR, which came into effect on 3rd March 2013. This Regulation bans the import, sale or commercial use of illegally sourced timber and wood products.
Our obligations under Article 5 of the Regulation are that we will:
  • Identify the operators or traders who have supplied the timber and timber products.
  • Identify, where applicable, the traders to whom we have supplied timber and timber products.
  • Keep records of this information for at least 5 years and provide it to competent authorities if they so request Ltd is FSC® and PEFC certified and hold relevant Chain of Custody - CoC certification.

The Forest Stewardship Council® – FSC – is an independent, non-governmental and non-profit organisation established to promote the responsible management to the World’s forests. FSC Certification is designed to provide a guarantee to customers that products sold with a specified FSC certificate code originate from well managed forests.

We work in conjunction with the FSC International Standards: FSC -STD-50-001 (V1-2) EN  and FSC -STD-40-004 V2-1 EN.
