Forestry Services

NSF-ISR offers forest certification programs for the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) scheme, and American Tree Farm System (ATFS). Through a partner firm NSF offers joint audits that include Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification. Services include:

  • SFI forest certification (SFI 2010-2014 Standard)
  • SFI chain of custody (CoC) certification
  • SFI fiber sourcing certification
  • PEFC CoC certification
  • Combined FSC and SFI or PEFC certifications
  • ATFS forest certification

SFI is the most widely used forest certification standard in North America. PEFC provides a global standard by endorsing national and/or regional standards. In North America, it endorses SFI and ATFS, among others.

ATFS certification applies to small family forest landowners in the U.S. FSC certification covers forest management and chain of custody. Whatever your forest management needs, NSF has a service to fit.

Additionally, NSF-ISR is an experienced management systems registrar and can handle your systems certification needs. Look to NSF-ISR for your management systems needs such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001 or OHSAS 18001.

We can provide greenhouse gas (GHG) project verification/validation services and our project sectors include forestry. We can validate that your GHG project is capable of delivering the intended emission reductions or carbon sequestration. This service is sometimes combined with the initial verification of offset credits. We also verify that a greenhouse gas project has delivered the emission reductions or carbon sequestration as claimed.
