To coach from A to Z the implementation of a new Forest Environmental Management System (FEMS) or a new Sustainable Forest Management System (SFMS) as per several reference models meeting the expectations of the global market for certified wood;
To create a FEMS or a SFMS content, tailored to the needs and the enterprise culture of each private or institutional client
To train the personnel (or the inside trainers) to assure the effective maintenance of the system
To pre-audit the obtained results in order to rectify the last deviations
To submit the rectified results to an independent registrar for the final evaluation and delivery of the certificate of conformity
Proposed reference models:
ISO 14001: International System relevant to the Forest Environmental Management (FEMS) certifiable by accredited third party and applicable on public and private forests
CSA Z809: Canadian System relevant to the Sustainable Forest Management (SFMS) certifiable by accredited third party and applicable on public forests
CSA Z804: Canadian System relevant to the Sustainable Forest Management (SFMS) certifiable by accredited third party and applicable on private forests (small lots)
SFI: U.S. System relevant to the Sustainable Forest Management (SFMS) certifiable by accredited third party and applicable on US woodlands
PEFC: International System relevant to the Sustainable Forest Management under the control of International Forest Authorities and certifiable by accredited third party
FSC: International System relevant to the Sustainable Forest Management under the control of the Leaders of Alternative Forest Stewardship and certifiable by accredited third party
Any other reference model whose implementation must be documented and demonstrated either to a third party to obtain a certificate of conformity or a competent authority to obtain the permission to engage in a regulated activity.
The tracking system of the wood products (and derivatives) from the initial collection to the final consumer is called chain of traceability or chain of custody.
All above standards propose different competitive processes to assure traceability and certification for which we are providing a complete range of consulting services as required.
We are one of the few consulting firms to offer the integration of several reference models, gathering the requirements of ISO 14001, CSA Z809, SFI and PEFC in a unique integrated and certifiable manual, thanks to our own document management system (IDMS).
