Willamette Falls Paper Company in West Linn, Oregon has added Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) chain of custody certification (SFI-01924) to its full line of paper products.

SFI’s Chain-of-Custody Standard and associated labels allow businesses to provide assurance to customers that wood, paper and packaging products are made with raw materials from certified forest content, certified sourcing or recycled content.

The SFI 2015-2019 Chain-of-Custody Standard is an accounting system that tracks forest fibre content through production and manufacturing to the end product.

Companies can use chain-of-custody certification to track and communicate forest fibre content using one of three optional approaches for chain-of-custody: physical separation, average percentage and the volume credit method.

To be certified, companies must be audited by an independent third party to the SFI 2015-2019 Chain-of-Custody Standard.
