ASI Suspends Certification Activities for LGA Intercert

Thursday, 1 August 2013

Effective 13 June 2013, Accreditation Services International (ASI) suspended Certification Body LGA Intercert GmbH (LGA/IC) from issuing FSC Forest Management and Chain of Custody certification worldwide. As of this date, LGA/IC is not permitted to sign new certification contracts or perform initial certification assessments until ASI has lifted the suspension.

LGA/IC has issued 365 valid FSC Chain of Custody certificates in fifteen countries, with the vast majority located in Germany. The suspension will not affect these current certificates provided that LGA/IC addresses the non-conformities within six months.
