FSC PAPER CERTIFICATION

What does it mean when you see the FSC Logo?

FSC Paper Certification

Premvantillrolls are FSC Certified, therefore we can offer you the ability to buy paper rolls with confidence that you are purchasing paper from a supply chain which has sourced from responsible sources.

What does it mean when you see the FSC Logo?

FSC labels can be found on millions of products around the world: from toilet rolls to your favourite book, that milk carton in your fridge, and other food products. What does it all mean?

Simply put, it means that we can provide you with an assurance that the product you are buying is made from wood from responsible sources.

FSC Mix

The FSC Mix label means the wood within the product is from FSC-certified material, recycled material, or controlled wood. While not fully FSC-certified, controlled wood cannot be:

  • illegally harvested;
  • harvested in violation of traditional and civil rights;
  • harvested in forests where high conservation values (HCVs) are threatened;
  • harvested in forests being converted to plantations or non-forest use;
  • harvested in forests where genetically modified trees are planted.

Why an FSC-Certified product does not mean a company is FSC Certified

Any company that wants to add the FSC label to any of the products it makes must first receive chain of custody (CoC) certification. This certification proves it is sourcing materials from FSC-certified forests, and following FSC-defined best practice throughout the production process and supply chain.

Only products that use FSC-certified materials can carry the on-product label. So, just because one product carries it, does not mean all products from the same company are made from responsibly sourced materials. You still need to inspect individual products to find out which come from responsible sources and which do not, even if the same company makes both products.

Retailers selling products they have not made themselves may apply to use the FSC logo without being certified. They are only allowed to use the logos to promote the FSC-certified products that they sell.

We have been certified for over a decade and our certificate number is CU-COC-818674
