Chain of Custody Certification

The Timber Veneer Association of Australia is committed to sourcing both indigenous and exotic timber veneer species from sustainable, harvested logs.

The TVAA fully supports industry moves to certification. Chain of Custody Certification in Australia is available in these schemes:

  • Responsible Wood Certification Scheme,
  • The Program for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC)
  • The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification program.

AFS, PEFC and FSC have developed their own standards, which set down requirements that each enterprise in the supply chain needs to meet to protect the integrity of the claim that ‘products are from certified forests’.

Using these standards individual companies are able to implement a Chain of Custody system within their own operations. Certified veneer products are available from our members. AFS is included by PEFC, which is international.


The Association also endorses all other third-party certification schemes.
