FSC® is an international non-profit, multi stakeholder organisation established to promote responsible management of the world’s forests. Its main tools for achieving this are standard setting, independent certification and labelling of forest products. FSC® chain of custody is a tracking system that allows manufacturers and traders to demonstrate that timber comes from a forest that is responsibly managed in accordance with the FSC® Principles and Criteria.

The PEFC™ Council is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organisation which promotes sustainably managed forests though independent third party certification. The PEFC™ provides an assurance mechanism to purchasers of wood and paper products that they are promoting the sustainable management of forests. The Australian Forest Standard (AFS) is PEFC™ certified which allows TLB to offer COC on AFS products under AS 4707.

All certified products sold by TLB are easily identified with relevant branding and documentation.
