How does the FSC fibre-testing programme work?

Since 2011, FSC has been part of a joint venture with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service’s Forest Products Laboratory (FPL) with the goal to test approximately 2,000 FSC-certified components a year from around the world. The joint venture has served as a reliable quality management measure that provides producers and buyers of forest products added assurance against inaccurate claims. FSC has also been investigating the feasibility of isotope and DNA testing to verify the origin of products.
