What is FSC
COUNCIL (FSC) was established in 1993. It is an independent body that sets
standards for the world’s forest and forestry practices. This non-profit,
non-governed organization is set to find solutions to improve management
practices of forest socially and economically. Various standards have been
implemented on the usage of forest products to make them eco-friendly.
The main motive of
the Forest Stewardship Council is a sustainable development of the world’s
forest in three criteria i.e. Social rights, Economical rights, and ecological
rights. FSC label is the guarantee to customers that the material used is
eco-friendly and comes from a well-managed forest.
To be FSC
certified, the examination of a chain of wood (raw material) from the forest to
a customer must be checked to demonstrate its origination. This is (CoC) i.e.
Chain of Custody. Chain of
Custody Certification (CoC) verifies that the materials and
products used in the manufacturing process are genuinely manufactured from the
harvested forest at the initial level.
Why FSC is important?

(CoC) checks the traceability of products at every stage from processing,
manufacturing, transportation, and distribution that material is FSC certified.
