21 March is International Day of Forests, and ASI is pleased to be a part of the celebration. ASI’s team of 25 FSC assessors conduct witness and compliance assessments around the world, to ensure proper implementation of the FSC Forest Management and Chain of Custody standards. ASI assessors are conducting assessments in Brazil today, in Guatemala and Spain next week, and will be in the Ukraine, Bosnia Herzogovina and Italy in the coming weeks.
ASI has accredited more than three dozen Conformity Assessment Bodies to perform FSC certification, and ensures continued conformance with ongoing surveillance activities. ASI also oversees the FSC auditor registry and approves FSC training courses.
ASI’s vision is a world where responsible use of resources is the norm, driven by social and environmental initiatives. Read more about ASI international accreditation here.
