As 2014, Pond Cove Millwork has gained Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain of Custody Certification through the Maine-based Trust to Conserve Northeast Forestlands (TCNF). Pond Cove is responsible for complying with approved procedures, maintaining records of purchases and sales of certified products, and assisting with monitoring and auditing visits. None of which would be possible without guidance from The Trust.
TCNF is a 501c(3) non-profit organization based in New Gloucester, ME. The certifying body for TCNF is the Rainforest Alliance. The Trust maintains the certification and records facilitates audits, and assists members with compliance.
FSC certification is an international third party auditing system of forest management and utilization practices that assesses compliance with a set of ecological, economic and social standards for responsible forestry. Chain of Custody is an information trail, established and audited according to rules set by FSC, to ensure that wood comes from certified forests.
