Chain of Custody Assessment for Marine Timber Procurement

The general objective of this study was to provide technical expertise in responsible timber procurement to a private client interested in purchasing a large volume of tropical hardwood for marine construction from a legal and sustainable source. Activities included an assessment of different sources of timber according to pre-established environmental and social criteria based on timber companies’ track record and paperwork available. A responsible timber purchasing tool kit to inform the Client’s procurement systems was also developed. The document presents a set of legal and sustainable criteria and indicators to evaluate the reliability of timber sources, and basic guidelines for chain of custody design for timber of non certified origins.
