Norbord makes certification easier

Norbord Europe has enhanced its engineered wood-based panel products by extending the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) Chain of Custody certification to UK sites as well as applying for a Group Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification.

Norbord makes certification easier

Norbord Europe and Norbord BV now operate on the same FSC certification and the successful PEFC application permits the company to sell PEFC-certified board in the UK.

Both FSC and PEFC certifications illustrate that Norbord’s products originate in forests that operate in an environmentally-sustainable way, and are not derived from illegal logging or destructive forest management practices.

Both these certifications require a comprehensive audit trail of timber sources to show independent auditors that they come from sustainably-managed forests from around the world.

Rik Odendal, Norbord Europe’s wood purchasing manager, said: “We can now run Norbord Europe certification on a single management system which is much easier to manage and takes up less time than the previous individual systems.”
