EHS Support assisted with a client’s successful certification to three product supply chain-of-custody certification standards that included:
- The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) Supply Chain Certification Standard
- The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain-of-Custody Certification Standard (FSC-STD-40-004 V3-1 EN)
- The Program for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) Chain-of-Custody of Forest and Tree-Based Products Requirements
As part of this effort, EHS Support prepared policy and procedure manuals for the RSPO SCCS and combined FSC/PEFC standards. The manual included references to Quality Management System procedures, where applicable, to eliminate the need for duplicative procedures. EHS Support prepared materials for employee training on the certification standards and requirements, provided support during certification audits by the certifying body (registrar) and updated manuals and implementation records to address and resolve minor non-conformances and corrective actions resulting in certification.
