CertiSource is a new approach to timber certification. Timber must be traceable through supply chains where every entity (forests, sawmills and even traders) adheres to strict legal, social and environmental criteria. The CertiSource Standard goes beyond basic legal requirements and puts forest concessions and sawmills on the road to sustainable forest management.
Version 4.04 was published June 1 2017 (effective August 1 2017), along with an annex containing supporting and guidance information. Both documents are available for download below. The Indonesian versions of these documents will be available from August 1 2017.
Substantial reviews to the Standard and associated Policies are conducted regularly, often through wide-ranging stakeholder consultation. If you'd like to be involved in future consultations, click here.
