CERTIFICATIONS <ul><li>Do all Distributors have to be FSC certified, even if they don’t take possession of the product? </li></ul><ul><li>ANSWER FROM SCS CERTIFICATIONS: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The quick answer is ANY COMPANY who takes legal possession of an FSC product and wants to pass on the FSC claim must be FSC certified.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The reason is that although taking legal possession doesn’t always mean physical possession it is a link in the chain where there is possibility of items becoming switched or mistaken.  Without accounting for every link, there is no accountability back to the beginning of the supply chain to ensure that a product identified as FSC is actually FSC certified.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>There is a desk audit that we do for brokers who are not taking physical possession of the products they broker.  This is an audit conducted over the phone by an auditor who looks at a company’s internal procedures and mock-ups of invoices and shipping documents etc.  The audit is less than $2,000.  </li></ul></ul>
