In 2017 up to 1,000 companies globally, with specific focus on the Asia–Pacific region, are expected to be asked to participate in transaction verification by ASI. This number is expected to increase in 2018–2019 based on results from 2017. A subset of the selected companies will be asked to use the OCP (estimated 300–600 companies, with a special focus on Asia–Pacific and only companies trading in products for which investigation has shown significant issues with false claims). FSC and ASI will determine which certificate holders and supply chains will need to use the OCP. The OCP is also available for voluntary use by FSC certificate holders not identified by ASI.
