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.
