Certification Bodies

FSC sets the standards for forest management and chain of custody certification and defines the procedures that certification bodies should follow in their certification assessments. To ensure credibility and transparency, FSC does not issue certificates itself. Instead, this role is held by independent certification bodies who carry out the forest management, ecosystem services, ecosystem services, and chain of custody assessments that lead to FSC certification.

Assurance Services International (ASI)

FSC works with a global assurance partner: Assurance Services International (ASI) whose mission is to assure the credibility of voluntary sustainability standards. ASI oversees the certification activities of certification bodies to make sure that the forest stewardship standards are implemented correctly on the ground.
