There are the reasons why FSC label becomes important for people and forest

What is FSC?

FSC is a Forest Stewardship Council™, which is a non-profit organization. This organization has promoted his main job by responsibility for the improvement of forest management and market transformation.

What is FSC COC?

COC stands for Chain Of Custody which is the basis for obtaining a certificate of the production process. This system is a FSC-FM certified timber product in the manufacturing process and it must be able to trace back the source of the raw materials. In addition, it can be verified at different stages from the beginning of the process until the pulp production, paper product, and transportation to the consumers. In case that paper mill business uses pulp as the raw materials, the source of wood used to make pulp must be FSC-FM certified in order to produce FSC paper. The product may not be 100% FSC component, but it may contain other ingredients which can be certified as FSC MIX.

If you can see the FSC label on that products, it means that these products are from the forests where have the good management and harvesting activities. The example of the products that have the FCS labels are shown in Fig. 1.
