What are fibre-testing results used for?

Fibre testing is an additional quality assurance tool to tell whether products contain the family, genus, and/or species expected. The test may also determine the amount of recycled content in a fibre-based product, whether the product contains mixed tropical hardwoods, and the likely origin of the fibres in the product (country or region) – depending upon which testing technique is used. This information is useful for companies for due diligence and quality management purposes, and is used by FSC and ASI as an additional measure to ensure supply chain integrity.
