||FSC‚) Standard is an important asset now
and in the future.
Washington Alder LLC purchases all of their hardwood logs on the open market from wood producers in the States of Washington and Oregon.
We are committed to and participate in the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC‚) standards program, which practices a land stewardship ethic of principles, goals and performance confirmation.
Our FSC‚ program is reviewed by Independent third party auditors annually who certify that our procurement practices are in compliance with the FSC‚ standards.
This standard specifies the requirements under each system element that, if successfully implemented, allow organizations to sell and label products as FSC‚ Pure, FSC‚ Mixed, or FSC‚ Recycled, or to sell materials as FSC‚ Controlled Wood.
This standard is applied at the site level of Chain of Custody operations. Chain of Custody certification is required for organizations that want to produce and sell FSC‚-certified materials or products; or produce and promote FSC‚-certified products; or trades materials or products with FSC‚ claims.
The Chain of Custody certification is not required for organizations that do not gain legal ownership of such materials or products but simply arrange for buyer and seller: a) to make a deal without taking physical possession (often called an Ďagentí); or b) to transport the materials or products.
