Because of the integral admission to Keurhout-Sustainable of all FSC and PEFC-International endorsed certification systems the major part of the softwood demands as well as a considerable part of the tropical hardwood demands can be delivered as Keurhout-Sustainable.
For details on the validity of FSC and PEFC certificates reference is made to the website of these organizations.
Assessment of certificates and systems with respect to legal origin, since early 2005, has resulted in the admission of a considerable number of forest management units (FMU) and CoC certificates.
The relevant companies may supply this timber as “Keurhout-Legal admitted timber only” or simply “Keurhout Legal” to Keurhout participants, who will put it on the market as Keurhout-Legal.
It is expected that the number of forest units, companies and countries admitted to the Keurhout-Legal system will continue to increase year by year. [KH-Legaal overview List]
