Category A practical guide to checking certificates
A one page checklist on things you need to check, to make sure that the product is actually certified under Category A. Category A evidence is holding certification by an approved third party independent forest certification scheme, currently Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).
The certification schemes FSC and PEFC are compliant with the UK government’s legality and sustainability criteria. The steps in the checklist will help you check that the certification applies for FSC and PEFC products you you receive. It also gives some guidance on common issues and solutions.
