Important announcement regarding FSC® Certification Services

29/11/16

Bureau Veritas Certification (BVC) has had its accreditation for Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) Certification Services temporarily suspended by Accreditation Services International (ASI) w.e.f 19th October, 2016, the FSC® scheme’s accreditation body. BVC is addressing this situation, prioritizing corrective actions to minimize any potential impact on recent applicants and prospective clients. Please read the relevant section below which may apply to your company’s situation:

 

Existing Clients (with valid FSC® certificate):

Companies that already hold BVC Forestry Management (FM) and Chain of Custody (CoC) certificates are advised that the certificates that have received remain valid. The temporary suspension has no impact on BVC’s operations for on-going FSC® certification contracts. Surveillance and re-certification assessments will be performed as normal and as scheduled. If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact your local BVC office.

 

Recent Applicants (with pending FSC® certificate):

Companies that have recently signed an agreement with BVC for FSC® Certification Services and whose Main Audits have been conducted before 19th October, 2016 will have their certificate issued as usual. Others’ Main Audits can be conducted but certificate will be issued after temporary suspension is lifted.

 

Prospective Clients:

If you are considering BVC for FSC® Certification Services, we have to inform you that at during the suspension period we will not be able to sign a formal agreement for FSC® services with your organization. However, BVC is working actively on addressing the issues identified and resuming normal service shortly.

 

For more information, please do not hesitate to contact your local BVC office.
